Translated into English by R. & H.M. Lydekker. Guillaume Vasse (even his name was translated) sailed to Mozambique in 1904 to enjoy an extended hunting trip. Proceeding into the foothills of the Drakensburg Range, he collected klipspringer and bushbuck, then traveled to the Zombi River where he bagged sable. Near the Pungwi River, Vasse hunted eland, hartebeest, waterbuck, and buffalo. Numerous leopard were bagged in the region, as well as elephant. Continuing on to the Sungwi River, he also collected a number of lion. Entering the Zambezi, hippopotamus was added to the bag, as was kudu. This is an excellent work of sporting adventure, well illustrated with numerous photographs, and quite scarce.
