Olorgasalie, located near Lake Magadi, is an important archeological site. This area was an area of intensive habitation and activity by a population of Homo erectus, around 500,000 years ago. The digs here have uncovered plenty of fossils, tools and early artefacts. The site is now open to the public, and well worth a visit for anyone with an interest in Prehistory.
