Lunch in a picnic area in the Park.
After lunch, visit the Olduvai Gorge, in the south-eastern part of the Serengeti.
Our ancestors lived in this area for millions of years and, thanks to the work of archaeologists and paleoanthropologists, important artifacts, hundreds of fossilized bones and stone and bone tools have been found here, testifying to the way in which they lived more than 2 million years ago.
Thanks to these discoveries and the historical value they represent, the Olduvai Gorge was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1979.

The ancient tribes of Lake Eyasi

After breakfast in the lodge, you will visit Lake Eyasi, a region that is home to a very interesting human group: the Hadzabe bushmen, the last heirs of a civilization that does not know about agriculture, cattle breeding, ceramics and metallurgy.

They live off hunting with bows and arrows and collecting berries and wild fruits.
They are the last heirs of the homines sapientes who, along the Rift Valley, took their first steps here about 200,000 years ago.
Their way of life has remained unchanged for centuries, living in small wandering groups of about twenty individuals. Meeting them is a very interesting experience.

We will also visit a Datoga village, who are polygamous breeders from the Horn of Africa, who have come to this region by following their herds in search of pastures.
This population works with ancient techniques and produces iron objects for daily use, jewelry and arrowheads for the neighbouring Hadzabe, who repay them with animal skins and wild honey.
