Continuity 

When Honey Bear is awaiting the boat to take away (first time round) she is seen sitting on her suitcases and trunks. Then she walks down the slope with just her umbrella in her hand, bids Marswell good bye and hops in the boat. The captain lifts the gangway and off they sail away, forgetting her bags on the shore.

When the trio are singing around the piano, Brownie can be seen standing close to Nordley on Nordley's right-hand side. However in the shot of Marswell in the doorway, only Nordley can be seen at the piano in the background - Brownie has disappeared.

Errors in geography 

During the gorilla footage - shot separately from the rest of the film - the gorillas are shown eating pineapples, which, while being grown in ZImbabwe and Cote d'Ivoire, are not native to the region of Africa in this movie.

Factual errors 

In the gorilla sequence in the latter part of the movie, Vic is with Nordly when he "cocks" his rifle. He opens/unlocks the bolt a quarter-turn and draw it fully back but when he advances it forward to re-lock there is no bullet in the breech.

Revealing mistakes 

After Victor rescues Mrs Nordley when she wanders off, a sudden storm blows in. But only the trees and bushes near the actors are blown about by the 'storm', the trees visible a short distance behind them are completely calm.

When Honeybear is having dinner with Marswell, Brown-Pryce and Koltchak on her first night, it is visibly dark outside as Marswell had earlier told her dinner would be at 9:00. But when the servant comes running in calling for the men, it is clearly broad daylight as seen through the doorway.

As Victor and Eloise argue on the deck, she is holding a cigarette between the index and middle fingers of her left hand. At one point, she folds her arms. She should have reacted to the cigarette now burning her, but doesn't. When she unfolds her arms, the cigarette remains between her fingers, and intact.
