Published on : Tuesday, June 11, 2019

Researchers world over will meet in Arusha from July 17th as part of the memorial of the 60th anniversary of Serengeti National Park and discovery of the fossilized skull of Zinjanthropus in Olduvai Gorge.


While speaking at the Karibu/KiliFair International Tourism Fair in Arusha yesterday, Hamisi Kigwangalla, the Natural Resources and Tourism minister explained that tourists were also hoped to assemble to the two sites during the commemoration period.


“For five days from July 17, Tanzanians and experts from all over the world who will be meeting in Arusha will have an opportunity to view the Zinjanthropus skull, which is being preserved by the government,” he said.



Dr. Kigwangalla further added that now, the fossils would be displayed at the site of discovery, after it was shifted in 1959 following its discovery by anthropologists Louis and Mary Leakey.


From July 17th, the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area Authority (NCAA) will arrange transport between Karatu and Olduvai Gorge to allow Tanzanians to view the skull. Dr. Kigwangalla requested the media to assist in publicizing the commemoration, which is also targeted at further endorsing the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Serengeti National Park as leading tourist attractions in the country.


“We are grateful to have here with us the Mwananchi Communications Limited executive editor, Uhuru Publications chief executive, Tanzania Broadcasting Corporation director general, ITV and other media houses. We hope that you will help us to publicise this important milestone,” he said.
