Czech (Kenneth) AN ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY OF AFRICAN BIG GAME HUNTING BOOKS 1789 -1999, page 9: The author hunted along the Guaso Nyiro in Kenya, bagging buffalo and rhino. His party attempted to reach the Lorian Swamp, but having failed, they returned to the Guaso Nyiro where hippo and giraffe were collected. There are numerous additional sporting incidents after rhino, gazelle and other game, including a successful elephant hunt by a member of the column. After encounters with hostile Kikuyus, the expedition headed into western Kenya where more rhinos were taken as well as kongoni.
