The Magic Lantern is an image projector using pictures on sheets of glass. Since some sheets contain moving parts, it is considered the first example of projected animation.
The thaumatrope housed a rotating mechanism with a different
picture on each side.
When rotated, you saw a combined picture (known as persistence of vision).
The phenakitoscope featured spinning disks reflected in
made it seem like the pictures were moving.
The zoetrope was a hollow drum that housed images on long interchangeable
strips that spin and made the images appear to move.
The flip-book, also known as the kineograph, reached a wide
audience and is credited
with inspiring early animators more than the machines developed in this era.
The praxinoscope expanded on the zoetrope, using multiple
wheels to rotate images.
It is considered to have shown the first prototypes of the animated cartoon.

Our scenic locations are carefully chosen for an otherworldly perspective of wilderness frontiers. In the shadow of a helicopter, watch a lioness stalk gazelles. You find that the oldest roads in Africa are shaped exclusively by Zebra and Elephant tracks marching resolutely toward the horizon in Africa’s last wild places.
Generations-old accrued wisdom and resoluteness of evolution as witnessed when you’re airborne above the bountiful savannah lands that divide nations and diverse habitats. Africa's history is as deep as Precambrian bedrock, its landscapes more diverse than any other continent on the planet. Your journey over these regions transcends national boundaries.
A collection of myriad streams and little rivers form the catchment of the Okavango Delta, fed by summer rains falling between October and April, swelling the waters between December and March. This delta owes its creation to tectonic movements in a set of fault lines in the earth’s weaker crust along an extension of the Great Rift Valley in East Africa, still occurring today.
Fly low and slow over Africa, discovering the world's most diverse ecosystems, from the most densely teeming with life to the wildest emptiness. See giant dunes sprawl across the Namib, possibly the oldest desert on Earth.
