Eagle Island Camp by Orient Express

Eagle Island Camp by Orient Express   |  Okavango Delta, Xaxaba Island, Botswana  | Situated on remote Xaxaba Island among a web of waterways and lush vegetation, it overlooks a lagoon that attracts a breathtaking variety of big game and exotic birds. Explore the region by local canoe, set out on a game drive or roam on foot. One of the three Orient Express Camps I visited during my trip across Botswana and Souther Africa. One of the most romantic bars in the world, accommodation you would expect of a luxury safari experience, and air/river Safaris that will take your breath away.  Continue reading Eagle Island Camp by Orient Express

Yes the same I used to read about when I was a child ” The Little Prince ” by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. This happened during our Helicopter ride by Orient Express at the Okavango Delta in Botswana. The Baobab Tree is also known as the tree of life, with good reason too. It is capable of providing shelter, food and water for the animal and human inhabitants of the African Savannah regions.  Continue reading Finally I saw the Baobab Tree in Botswana
