Czech: An annotated Bibliography of African Big Game hunting Books, 1785 to 1950, page 7, ‘The author hunted along the Guaso Nyiro in Kenya, bagging buffalo and rhinoceros. His party attempted to reach the Lorian Swamp, but, having failed, they returned to the Guaso Nyiro where hippopotamus 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 party. After encounters with hostile Kikuyus, the expedition headed into western Kenya where more rhino were taken, as well as kongoni.’
