The Gorge is an interesting side trip for those heading to Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti. It is worth visiting the museum to read about the history of this area and discovery of fossils by the Leakey's, but you don't get to 'see' much. Tourists are only able to look down into the valley from a viewing area and the famous early man footprints have been covered over for future peservation. Nice spot for a little quiet contemplation, trying to imagine what it would have been like 2.5 million years ago for the first humans who lived here!
