Thanks for the response, James Cooper. I definitely agree to you that no VR expeirence will come close to actually being in the Serengeti. But what about all the travel required to get to the Serengeti? Not getting enough sleep on the flight, arriving there and being jet lagged, the shots you need to get before you leave. The extra days of vacation you need to take just to travel. When I was thinking it could be 10x better, in my mind I was taking all those costs into account. Still skeptical?
