Benin City lies in the rain-forest zone of Bendel State of Nigeria. Forest management in south eastern Nigeria has changed hands from the forest communities to foreign technology.

Plant Life on Kilimanjaro truly is kaleidoscopic, from the dense canopies of green within in the tropical Rain Forest, to the fine wisps of lichen scattered across the Highland Desert. In a typical ascent up the mountain one would encounter biodiversity beyond the wildest imagination, stretching across at least five very different habitats. Borderi...

Plants near the top of the mountain tend to become less and less. Travelling slightly higher up the slopes of Kilimanjaro, one will come across the heath and moorland. Also known as the grassy land of giants, the heath is inhabited by enormous heathers growing taller than 9 feet in many instances. Scattered between the giant shrubs are resilient fl...

A relative of the horse family (Equidae) the zebra is a gregarious animal moving in herds of 20 to 100 or more. They often move with wildebeest and occasionally hartebeest or roan.
