  • The Turkana Safari journey we’ve been on is a spectacular, if sobering, one in which we learn lessons not just about what has occurred over millions of years, but how the planet is changing as we sleep. We are granted access to a room where some of the world’s most precious discoveries of our ancestors are kept. Skulls carefully lay out on a table, and we see the features that have changed over six million years of evolution, from a small-brained, large-jawed creature to the bigger-brained Homo sapiens of today.
