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 swamplands near
Lake Bangweulu, then returned to the Luangwa Valley for additional sport.
Letcher also mentioned the chimpakwe, the 'Brontosaurus' or similar prehistoric
beast that natives described living near Lake Bangweulu. He concludes his book
with descriptions of the types of game encountered in the area.
