Czech (Dr. Kenneth) An Annotated Bibliography of African Big Game Hunting Books 1785 – 1999, Page 196: Highlighted by the author's detailed illustrations, this work represents Millais' journey towards the Limpopo River with excursions to hunt kudu, reedbuck, waterbuck, sable, and roan. Near the Nuanetsi River, he bagged buffalo and Zebra. After leaving the Limpopo, he collected trophy kudu, as well as lion and leopard. A most readable and visually exciting book of African travel and big game hunting.
