Tanzania Tourist Board

29 February at 23:03 · Dar es Salaam, Tanzania ·



Tanzania Tourist Board (TTB) has been following up the ongoing discussions on social media following a video clip being posted on YouTube ( which has been circulating through various media channels showing a person claiming that Oldupai Gorge, a site in Tanzania that holds evidence of the earliest existence of mankind is in Kenya.
This video clip has triggered a lot of discussions on the different social media among Tanzanians and other people who have good wishes for Tanzania tourism who know very well that Oldupai Gorge is in Tanzania and NOT in Kenya.

As a public institution, responsible for marketing and promotion of Tanzania tourist attractions, Tanzania Tourist Board is also dismayed by this misleading information which intends to distort the good work the Board has been doing in promoting Tanzania tourist attractions including the Oldupai Gorge.

The Board would like to take this opportunity to strongly refute this statement delivered by the said person from a neighboring country while addressing one of the sessions of the International Young Leaders Assembly (IYLA) in USA, August 2015.

We would like to inform the world that as it is the case for Mt. Kilimanjaro, Serengeti National Park, Zanzibar to mention just a few, Olduvai Gorge which is referred to as the Cradle of Mankind, where Dr. Louis and Mary Leakey discovered important hominid remains of the nutcracker ‘Australopithecus bosel’, who lived nearly two million years ago, is also in Tanzania and not elsewhere in the world. It is located in the eastern Serengeti Plains in the Arusha Region and about 45 km, from Laetoli, another important archaeological site of early human occupation. The paleoanthropologist-archeologist team Mary and Louis Leakey established and developed the excavation and research programs at Olduvai Gorge which achieved great advances of human knowledge and world-renown status. Olduvai Gorge is one of the key tourist attractions for Tanzania.

We call upon Tanzanians and those with good wishes for Tanzania wherever they are to continue supporting the effort’s undertaken by TTB in marketing Tanzania and her all tourism attractions. We believe that it is the role of every single Tanzanian to promote Tanzania as Africa’s best destination and ask them to join and support Tanzania Tourist Board in its efforts to promote destination Tanzania.

We would like to applaud the reaction made by Tanzanians and non-Tanzanian within and out of Tanzania, who through this incident were able to stand up as ‘one voice’ and tell the world that OLDUPAI GORGE is INDEED IN TANZANIA!
