How it works


Bulpett was a member of W.N. McMillan's expedition through the Sudan and into Abyssinia. The party headed towards the Sobat River, collecting giraffe, tiang, and a variety of antelope. Near the Baro River in Abyssinia, elephant was bagged. Additional elephants were collected after crossing the Gelo River, with buffalo taken as well. Neat Mount Umgwala, roan and more elephants were collected. A portrait of the text also comes from the diary of Mrs. McMillan. (Bibliography of African Big Game Hunting Books 1785 - 1950   - Czech)
