While the attention of Tarzan and the rest of the safari is attracted to the ruins of the jungle village, the brightly painted cannibals sneak up behind them. There is a hiss of air and a sudden thud, as a spear zooms through the air.  Tarzan turns, and shouts, "Run! Run into the jungle! The cannibals are attacking!" Shrieks fill the air as the vicious natives press in towards the safari!
The guns of the safari are able to keep the shrieking cannibals back for a moment. Then an arrow finds its mark, and Edwards falls to the ground. Tarzan gives hurried orders.  "Carry him into the jungle. I will try to lead the cannibals in another direction." The safari runs and Tarzan is left all alone. He will have to defeat the cannibals by himself! They close in.
The cannibals are close to Tarzan when the ape-man makes a sudden leap, reaching a low-hanging limb. With quick movements, he climbs to the top of the tree and reaches a stout vine.  Grabbing the vine, he lets himself swing down, running right into the surprised cannibals, scattering them as though they were bowling pins! Then he races on ahead to join the rest of the safari!
When Tarzan reaches the rest of the safari, the cannibals are close behind. They come closer and closer . . . and ten suddenly stop. Jane cannot understand why the cannibals do not attack.  Tarzan looks behind him and whispers. "It is the Wazuri . . . the natives we have been looking for! Even the cannibals are afraid of the Wazuri!"  And as the fierce Wazuri step forward, the cannibals run.
The fierce Wazuri warriors face the members of Tarzan's safari, hatred showing from their eyes. They step closer, and Tarzan holds up his hand in a signal of friendship.  "I am Tarzan," he says. "My father lived in peace among you, many years ago. My friends and I have come to talk to your chief." The Wazuri look at each other and motion to the safari to come on. 
The fierce Wazuri warriors capture Tarzan's safari and lead them into the Wazuri village. They move through the streets, knowing that danger is all around them. Then they are led to a hut where they are made prisoners.  One of the warriors approaches Tarzan and says, "You come with us. Witchdoctor will speak with you!" Soon, Tarzan is facing the wildly-painted witchdoctor.
Tarzan faces the witchdoctor of the Wazuri tribe. He is going to throw his mystic bones to decide whether or not to kill all the members of Tarzan's safari. They are being held prisoner.  Moving very slowly, the witchdoctor holds the bones towards the fire. Then he shouts and tosses the bones on the ground before him. As they fall, he shrieks, "They must die!"
Jane, Tarzan's little friend, Joe, and the two enemies of Tarzan . . . Rockoff and Edwards . . . are being held prisoner in the Wazuri hut. They look down at the fire below, where Tarzan is talking to the witchdoctor.  They can't help but wonder what decision is being made. Are they to be killed?  They don't know that the witchdoctor has decided that they all die on the torture machine!
One of the members of Tarzan's safari has been tied down to the horrible torture machine of the Wazuris.  The witchdoctor is about to give the order for the sharp spikes to be lowered, when an old man steps forward with Tarzan.  "These people are friends," says the old man. "I remember Tarzan's father when, long ago, he used to live here. Take them to the chief!"
The old man takes Tarzan before the chief of the Wazuri. He explains that he remembers Tarzan's father when, long ago, he used to live with the Wazuri. Because of that, he thinks Tarzan's safari should be treated as friends.  The Wazuri Chief is not sure. If Tarzan is really the son of their old friend, he will have a copy of his father's bible. Tarzan has to get it!
Because an old man in the Wazuri tribe remembers Tarzan, the rest of Tarzan's safari is brought into the Wazuri temple to face the chief. Rokoff and Edwards, the two crooks, are amazed when they enter the place. "Look at this," whispers Rokoff. "Diamonds all over the place. There must be a fortune here for the taking. It's just what we've been looking for."
Tarzan and the old man are facing the chief of the Wazuris in the Wazuri temple of diamonds. The Chief says, "I will not believe that you are friends of the Wazuris until you can show me the bible belonging to your father."  The old man turns to Tarzan and says, "I know where it is. A long journey from here." The Chief grunts, 'Then go. We will hold your friends until you return!"
On the hut where Jane and the others are being held prisoner by the Wazuri, Cheeta manages to steal the passport held by Edwards, the man who is pretending to be Tarzan's cousin. Cheeta shows the passport to Jane.  Jane realizes that the photograph in the passport is not a picture of Edwards. Now she knows that Edwards is a crook. Rokoff, the other crook, grabs it from her hands!
When Rokoff realizes that Jane has discovered he is a crook, he decides not to wait any longer before trying to steal the diamonds from the Wazuris. "I can make better magic than their witchdoctor can," says Rokoff.  He rushes out of the hut and soon gathers a crowd of Wazuris. He does one magic trick after another, and soon they think he is too good a witchdoctor to be a prisoner!
The two crooks, Rokoff and Edwards, sneak into the temple of the Wazuris. Diamonds glitter all around them and they start to fill a large chest with the precious stones.   They are so busy that they don't notice someone else enter the temple behind them. It is the Wazuri witchdoctor! Then, Rokoff turns with sudden surprise. He advances towards the witchdoctor smiling.

Tarzan's Savage Fury 3-D Trading Cards.
31. The meanest animal in Africa is the swamp buffalo. When wounded, he plunges into the brush and circles back on the hunter, then charges.

32. The Fuzzy Wuzzy is a handsome and courageous warrior. He carries a sword like that of the Crusaders. Only death can stop his fierce charge.

33. Among the hill tribes a warrior must prove his manhood by entering the cruel wrestling tournaments after which even the winner is beaten.

34. The African coast native sometimes ships out on Arab dhows and is a fine sailor, climbing the dizzy height of the lateen sail with ease.

35. The African, being a good swimmer, often hires out as a pearl diver. He wears red and blue beads as a charm against the big man-eating sharks.

36. Some of the rivers of Africa are raging torrents, pulled by the power of giant falls. Here the natives build barriers and trap large fish.

37. The native of Africa is proud of his strength and there are many inter-tribal contests not the least of which is the dangerous stick fight.

38. Roaming the forests of Central Africa, the wily pygmy bowman expertly selects a tree from which he may kill game without danger of injury.

39. In Central Africa, there is a region of extremes. Here live the tiny monkey and the huge gorilla, the little pygmy and the giant Wattussi.

40. No one enters the heart of Africa without the knowledge of the native, for the drum is the jungle telegraph -- swift, accurate and complete.

41. The witch doctor, a poison expert, is so feared by the other tribesmen, they sometimes die of fright from a warning of approaching doom.

42. When the swamp people or plainsmen dare enter the jungle or invade the mountain fastness, they may well be greeted with a spear and arrow.

43. Africa, the land of oddity, with desert and snowy mountain, where the tiny pygmy slays the giants of the jungle with a little poisoned arrow.

44. Justice is swift and sure in Africa, and the wrongdoer is relentlessly pursued by the best trackers who notice every bent blade of grass.

45. The cattle-raising tribes hate the leopard and hunt him down without mercy. He is very hard to kill because he charges in zigzag spurts.
