How it works


Savile and his wife crossed Nyasaland  and Northern Rhodesia during high grass season - “the season in which the intelligentsia of shikar do not usually attempt to shoot.” The author’s party hunted the Vipya Highlands in the vicinity of Lake Nyasa, bagging bushbuck, waterbuck and encountering elephants. His most enjoyable passages relate his experiences stalking buffalo and elephant in the tall grass regions near Msora. He also collected eland, kudu, impala and other plains game. Original pale red cloth with gilt spine titles and kudu head. Original endpapers firm and tight. Illustrated with photo plates. A tight, clean copy. International postage from the U.S. is $35.95
