I am still making memories as I go along.
But what has stood out is how welcome every has made me feel and going to watch the elephant drink at the reservoir. It was one of the best experience of my life and being that close. It was so special watching the baby elephant trying his hardest to drink while standing on his back legs. It is truly something I will never forget.

There are many different cultures, different things to see , our awesome wild life and there many different activities so there is something for everyone.
