Story From The Wild

Lake eyasi
Is a uniquely beautiful lake lies at 1030m between the Eyasi escarpment ,in the north and the Oldean mountains in the south Eyasi makes a detour on the Ngorongoro trip for any one,looking for something remote and different, the lake itself varies considerably in the size depending on the rains and supporting a mix of water birds including huge breeding season.
June to November  population of flamingos and pelicans in the  dry season  ,it is little more than a parched lake bed lending to the rather other worldly ,primeval ,ambience of the  area.
The presence  of the traditional Hadza lends a soulful human presence to the region.
Also in the area are Irawq a people of Cushitic origin who have been to the area for about 2000yrs ago,
And Datoga people noted metal smiths whose dress and culture is quite similar with the Masai of east Africa

Mumba Caves
Located nearly to a highly alkaline lake Eyasi in the northern part ,is a rich archaeological site noted for deposit spanning the transition between the  middle stone age  and late stone age in eastern Africa ,
The transition nary nature of the site has been attributed to the large presence of it is large assemblage of ostrich  egg shells ,beads and more importantly ,the abundance of  microlith  technology ,because these type artifacts were found within the site ,
It has lead archeologist to believe that the site could provide insight into origins of the modern  human behavior ,
The caves were originally tested by Ludwing  Kohl –Larsen and his wife Margit in 1934 to 1936 expeditions .
They found abundant artifacts ,rock art and burials .However only brief descriptions of these findings were ever published .
That being said work of the Kohl-Larsen has been seen a very accomplished due to their attention to details especially when one considers that neither was versed in proper archeological techniques at the time of excavation.
The site has since been re-examined in an effort to reanalyzed and comp lent the work that has already been done ,but the ramifications of improper excavations of the past are still being felt today ,especially in the unreliable collection of C-14 and confusing stratigraphy
