After weeks of marching, a herd of elephants finally reaches its destination. Unlike the dry, desolate Kalahari Desert, this part of Africa resembles a lush water world.

Underwater cameras capture an amazing scene that most people have never seen before. The elephants trod out into the water for a refreshing swim! "I didn't know elephants could swim underwater," Oprah says. "I've never seen that before. It's just incredible."
