Denise and Allister Pedersen travelled to Rwanda for a gorilla trek and Tanzania for a safari in October 2011.

During their 21-day trip they visited Kigali and then drove 200 kilometres to Volcano National Park in Rwanda for the gorilla trek.

The Tanzanian portion of the trip included visits to four national parks including the Serengeti and a tour through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

The trip concluded in Zanzibar for tours of the slave chambers and spice plantations.

The presentation gets up-close and personal with many varieties of birds, butterflies and beasts including the mountain gorilla, baboons, lions, leopards, lizards, weavers, giraffes, hippos, secretary birds and the lilac-breasted roller.
