Of all the memories of the animals we saw, the other families we met, and the wonderful agenda that Thomson put together for us, the one thing that made the trip really spectacular was that we saw Tanzania with native Tanzanians, not professional guides who learned about the country from travel guides or training sessions.
They told us about or showed us their homes, their schools, their politics and the natural beauty of their country in a way that made us understand and appreciate the people in Tanzania.
I have traveled to many countries of the world but I have never come away with a feeling of having seen the country through the eyes of the people who live there like I did on this trip. It was wonderful for me as an adult, and I am so thankful that my grandson, as well as the other children on the trip, was able to have such a special cultural experience. Trips like this can change our perspective of the world and open our minds and hearts to the many wonderful people from the different cultures of the world.
Thanks again for a great trip!
