Letcher hunted in the Luangwa Valley for elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, eland and other game. After crossing the Muchinga Mountains, he bagged rhinoceros and elephant, as well as roan. He continued his hunt in the swamp lands near Lake Bangweulu, then returned to the Luangwa Valley for additional sport.
Letcher also mentioned the chimpakwe, the "brontosuarus" or similar prehistoric beast that natives described as living near Lake Bangweulu. He concludes his book with descriptions of the types of game encountered in the area.
