How it works


Many people have been on safari but few venture to take a safari alone. Dr. Reinald von Meures's record is unique: He has been on twenty-five self-guided hunts in the Cameroons; he has travelled from Lake Chad to the border of the Congo; and he has gone after elephant, bongo, buffalo, and a host of other animals over a period of nearly two decades.

Follow him as he faces bull elephant deep in the rain forest (more than twenty miles by foot to the nearest village); is threatened by a large gorilla; floats for several weeks down a remote river in search of new hunting grounds; bags forest rarities like sitatunga, giant forest hog, and bushpig; hunts for record-book dwarf buffalo; avoids sankes and stinging honey bees; and in general has the time of his life hunting solo in one of the most remote areas left on earth.

Illustrated with dozens of pictures, this book is an antidote for those tired of reading the usual safari story.

Foreword by Ernst A. Zwilling. This is volume twenty-six in Safari Press's Classics in African Hunting Series. 233 pages, 32 pages of colour and monochrome photographs. Limited numbered and signed.
