The guide was knowledgeable and able to answer questions. The site has a huge number of stone tools and interesting rock formations. It's a pity that more people don't visit and support the museum initiative.

This was a really fascinating archaeological dig, Richard Leakey excavated stone tools here. The resident Archaeologist is a pleasure to meet, we thoroughly enjoyed out visit. Highly recommended for families and anyone interested in Anthrologoy, Archaeology and Evolution.
