Hamilton acknowledged that he didn’t feel the images adequately captured how he was feeling, despite the fact that he had posted multiple pictures during the trip.
“No amount of photos could capture how I’m feeling now and what I’m trying to say,” the Mercedes driver said.
“Just know, where words fall short emotions run deep. I connected with my roots and my history and I feel my ancestors with me now stronger than I ever have before.
“Namibia, Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania thank you. To the people here, the nature and the wildlife thank you. We were welcomed to each beautiful place we visited. We were treated like family.
“To my brothers who joined me on this journey, thank you. I know we’ll be talking about this forever.”
