The location was post-colonial Congo. As usual, the greatest danger posed to the brothers, and to the animals, came not from the wild beasts but in the form of humans. The two main primary antagonists were: one inept, boastful but cowardly Belgian (Andre Tieg) who pass himself off as a guide, and a poacher of gorillas, called Nero, whose primary M.O. was to slaughter all adults and take the children gorillas.
In the midst of the dangers, Roger got temporarily blinded by a spitting cobra. Interestingly, one villager refers to a gorilla as 'man who can't speak' a reference to gorilla intelligence.
