Bora Bora

May 23, 2019 - National Geographic Orion

This morning we arrived at the famous Bora Bora Island. This renowned French Polynesia gem has a lot to offer. Incredible scenery, an enticing turquoise reef lagoon, stunning over-the-water bungalows and the warm local hospitality. We explored this paradise by 4x4WD and “Le Truck” and in the afternoon, we had the opportunity to enjoy a delicious lunch and a local music performance in our own private little island! What a fantastic last day of our expedition in French Polynesia!
