Olduvai Gorge is also known as Oldupai Gorge which means a certain type of sisal plant that grows mainly in that area. The name Olduvai Gorge was given by the Maasai people who live around that area.  It is one of the most important archeological sites situated in the Northern part of Tanzania mainly in the eastern Serengeti plains. This place was discovered by the paleoanthropologists Louis and Mary Leakey during the 20th Century. This Tanzania safari place is very unique since it is the only place in the world that contains enough evidence to prove that the earliest man existed there. Those who believe in creation will agree with me that, Olduvai Gorge is the Garden of Eden where the first human being created by God was put to cultivate and protect.

On visiting this place, you can be able to see tools that were being used by the earliest humans on earth. These tools are well preserved to teach the future generation about the lifestyle of the earliest man and the development of life from millions of years back. These tools which were made of stones, are known as Oldowan tools and they give a clear picture of the technological abilities of our ancestors. About forty-five kilometers south of Olduvai Gorge there is a place known as Laetoli which is famous for its Hominina footprints preserved in volcanic ash. This is the evidence for bipedalism in early hominins.
