"The first third of this book relates to the author's travels on the
Uganda Railway and an excursion into German East Africa. With
a safari consisting of 144 members, the Meikles proceeded to hunt
in British East Africa near the Guaso Nyiro. They bagged hartebeest,
oryx, rhinoceros, lion, gerenuk and waterbuck. After a bout with
dysentery, the party returned to the field where Mrs Meikle relates
a variety of camp experiences with a bit of buffalo hunting mixed in.
While there are several good descriptions of hunting big game, the
authors seem intent on stressing the 'holiday' aspect of their African journey
[Czech. An Annotated Bibliography of African Big Game Hunting Books
1785 – 1950 p.112]."
