The duo experienced lots of new and exciting things on their safari trek in open air Land Rovers. Although it was December, once the sun came out, they had nice, spring weather.

"Kind of like our winter here," Crommelin said.

"He was a medicinal witch doctor," Marlette said. "People still go to him."

"Instead of being passive tourists, we want to be more involved," Marlette said. "It was a fascinating journey."
