I thought that was absolutely fascinating the day, and the life experience is. So fantastic. Because you.
So close to the people and I have found the people here in Tanzania to be sold friendly, and welcoming it was a wonderful experience, and it was the first time. We've had that experience we often don't realize the struggles that people have for things just as simple as fresh clean water the amount of people walking that we saw intensely is just extraordinary, it's been absolutely wonderful this has been better than. I could have expected everything that.
I expected, and more ditto but again with species, and million wild animals in Tanzania there is no predicting exactly what may reveal itself on a journey here. This is our rd OAD trip you've been to all seven continents different countries, and seven times the Safari Serengeti trip of all the places country's trips tours. We've made.
This is by far still our favourite we love animals, and there's something magical about wild animals in their natural environment that keeps bringing us back when it comes. So close to the vehicle you can almost touch them when you see the big five like we have every time then we have come here, and that's what keeps bringing us back we love coming here you do.
