This work was the result of Roosevelt's ten month hunting trip through Central and Northern Africa, begun after leaving the White House in March 1909 and relates the journey from Mombasa through the mountain regions of British East Africa, to Victoria Nyanza, through the Congo and Sudan to Khartoum and on to Cairo via the Nile. As well as being one of the great books on big game hunting, it is also of considerable interest for the natural scientist.
