In 1972, Dr Richard Leaky and his team discovered Sibiloi, which is today universally recognized as the "Cradle of Mankind" and believed to be the most likely bibilical Garden of Eden.
Sibiloi National Park, located in Lake Turukana, Marasabit District of the Kenyan Eastern Province, was created to protect the sites of the many remarkable hominid fossils finds revealed, with the now park peak moment being when Dr.Richard Leaky and his team discovered one of its most valued treasure, a 2 million year old fossilized almost full skull, presently labeled 1470 by the National Museum of Kenya. The skull somewhat confirmed the excistence of an urbane evolutionary hominid that we all know as Homo habilis, a diriect ancestor of Homo sapiens - Us! They also found about 160 other additional finds relating to the Homo habilis.
An interesting fact is that the world's largest Crocodile population breeds on Lake Turukana's Central Island, meaning if you are a Crocodile fan, this is the place you want to visit!
