“Chapman recounts his journey to Khartoum, then up the White Nile into Uganda. He hunted gazelle in the arid regions of the Sudan, then stalked tiang, hartebeest, and roan near the Sobat River. As he continued up the White Nile, he bagged waterbuck, cob, and lechwe. There are exciting encounters with buffalo, hippopotamus, and elephant, the latter near the Zeraf River. Additional hunting for rhinoceros and eland took place near the Blue Nile and Dinder Rivers” (Czech).
