Kerr traveled to the South African diamond fields to seek
his fortune. He met Frederick Selous, the pair venturing into
the interior of Matabeleland. In the river country leading to the
Zambesi, he hunted elephant with his 500 Henry rifle which he
refers fondly to as 'C.L.K.' after his father's initials carves into
the stock. There are instances of hunting lion near the Matua
River, buffalo near Lake Nyassa, and more elephant on the
Shiré River [Czech, African Big Game 2011, p.151].
