“Great attraction and archaeological site”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

One of the best archaeological attractions I have been to in East Africa. The preserved early man's tools are just awesome. But I think the site is a little under sold. If you are in to pre-historic sites,this one site you must visit while in Kenya.

“Worth a visit to follow the footsteps of Louis Leakey”
Reviewed 13 February 2013

Kariandusi is a very interesting archeological site, located near lake Elementaita. You will see a vast array of stone tools, situated as discovered during the course of exploration and excavation by Louis Leakey. The guide is very knowledgeable, and the walk to the two different sites gives you a good feel for the area as it was in prehistoric times, even if things have likely shifted a bit over time. The landscape is lovely with views of the lake and Rift Valley. Well worth the visit.

“Archaeological visit”
Reviewed 4 January 2013

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.
