    Location of Olduvai Gorge museum

    The Olduvai gorge museum can be said to be an oasis in the middle of nowhere, a spark of civilization amidst a semi arid landscape. It is located south of the Olduvai gorge and in the western part of the Ngorongoro conservation area, near its border with the Serengeti national park.

    For more information on its location, please see the map below.

    How to get there?By vehicle, unless you prefer walking through the desert landscape - which can be fun. It is much closer to the Serengeti national park, lake Ndutu (south west) and the Loliondo game controlled area (north) and about a two hour drive from Loduare gate.

    As it is inside the Ngorongoro conservation area, you would need to pay for the respective permits before heading out here (see NCAA website).
