Closeup of Eastman photographing the tribesmen. The two women in the party, Osa Johnson, wife of cinematographer, Martin Johnson, and Mrs.Carl Akeley, are carried in Sedan Chairs, of sorts, borne on shoulders of natives. The are protected from the sun by umbrellas. Next, Osa Johnson is seen, chatting with Daniel Pomeroy, George Eastman and white hunter, Philip Percival, as they stand beside a thatched shelter. Percival is smoking a pipe and Eastman holds a cigarette. They all step into the shade of the shelter. The four are next seen, dimly at a table protected by mosquito netting. Native assistants raise the netting to allow cinematographer Martin Johnson (unseen) to capture the moment on film. One of the native assistants pours Eastman a drink from a large earthenware jug. Liquor bottles are on the table.
