fired but without doing much apparent damage and then I ha-d 2 shots, one
taking him on the chest but did not down him eeing the pony he sprang
out after him but I managed to put a bullet in his shoulder which turned
him and he made otraigit for me* I took careful aim and.put another in
his ohest. Even this did not stop him, so I aimed agatinp (he was only
about 15 yards off), this time I placed a bullet sidowise hrougth his
head* Be sprang up in the air, a truly magnificent sig4t, standing for
a second as it were$ on hie hind legs and then with a last roar he fell
over backward and slowly struggled into some long grasta, I, who had
run. back eXter firing my rifle, to get his. om then canme up and shot a
solid or two into the lion and this finished him, Then we went
cautiously up to look at our prize, We found him a malmficent black mane.
The mane cae down his back more than half way and was immensely thick,
it was the best lion I had ever shot, or even seen, measuring 99 6" as i
fell and the skin without stretching wais 11' I10 from the tip of nose to
ditto of tail, Everybody in the o a3. delighted* Had the Dr. not left
the trail when he did9 the lion would have been otten by him as he and.
Howie were leading Went out in the afternoon and shot a congoni and a
pig for the boys. The first congoni I shot fell as if deaA and. when
the boys rushed tip to cut his throat he got up and cleared and, although he
stopped and stagered once, he apparently regained his strength and went
away stronger than ever joined another herd of congtni, disappeared over
a rise and I never saw him again t Got ba.ck to a.p just at dark.

i. Up early. Pine morning. Left camp at 6,*30 and pitched
camp on a swamp in about 2 hours, Oood looking place for. lion, Rowri e
amd 3Dr# e out after theman we, water" our good luck yesterday, taking it.
a bit easy in camp. I o'clockt news just came in saying Dr has shot a
lioness,. The lioness proved a young cub about month old*

g g _2y^.5 i Left camp at 6.30 to visit Elephant Sk-ull Swamp and Iiller's
s'aaznp, taking boys to carry food and blanlets enoU4 for 2 days. Struck
& 8. Swamp in about 4 hours but drew blank. After leaving for Good
Wok camp we struck rather fresh elephant spoor and followed it for about
3 hours but seeing that they were not feeding and that they were making;
direct for Elgon, we turned off aMd made down to Zillervs Samp, which
was' also empty. So wo "turned b ack and wont to Sood keck cap and pitched


for the night, which insisted of cutting a little grass and making a bed
in the old skin house that we bIt. when we were last there I nnt out
and shot meat for camp.

V~~t2. Slept rather badly owing to mules and horse being tethered
nearby. Fine morning, Bad a cup of tea and bully beef and pulled out
for Howie's camp, taking e S, Swam p en route No luck there, so pulled
for home and arrived there about 12 o'clock, putting up 3 cheetahs just
before we got there and which we tried to round up, but they got away in
the long grass. Arrived at camp and found Dr, bad shot 2 lions, fairly







good size Yestoerday W # and I had a very good chance to get a couple
more skins, but W, saycq ho does not want anry more, so we let a very easy
and sure chance go by. Towards evening in, camp news wan brought that 2
lions were eating a kongoni a few hundred yards from camp, W, Howie and
I and the Dr went out after th.em, it being- agreed that V4 and I should
have first chance, I spied the lions a few hurnired yards off the kill
and our Somali gave chase on the pozqy, He rounded them tup after about a
mile, As we were on foot and the 2r, and Howie were both mounted they
got close up to the lions first and instead of waiting for us as agreed,
the Dr# got off and shot her, This was very unsportsmanlike, but the Dr.
is a hog on lions, He apologised afterwards although it nearly led to a
split between the .Dr and. 1. 'but this have riLighted themselves and. t-he Dr.
goes off with Howie tomorrow after elephant and we go off the day after,
The lion hot by the ar. was a good large, black mane, buit not nearly as

especially was a monster, big black mane1 near 'E, S Swanp, but W, did
not care to risk going after them as the grass was. long, They did not
seem frightened but kept getting on ant hills and looking back at us. I
should have liked to have had a. try for the big chap by .myself, but W,
didn't want me to.

T* returned about 8 o'clock saying they had structck fresh spoor W.bWad
just finished breakfast and were soon on our mules, We struck their trail
a few miles from camp and found it leading us a nice dance backwards and
forwards and always a-bout one hour ahead., After about 3 hours had gone
by the elephant crossed the Nzoia River and I. was- there able to see their
spoor plainly. lsaw they were only cows and totos and told 4, so, I
don't% think he gave me credit for knowing for certain what they were and
wanted to push on after them This we did for another hour and a half and
then managed to get up to them within about 30 yards while they were having,
,a mud bath* They turned out as I expected 5 cows and 5 totos, We
watched them for some time and eventually left them and hsaded for camp
which we reached at 5 o'clock* All. ired out and very thirsty* A whisicy
and soda soon pat me to rights. Had dinner about 6,30 and txuned right in
hoping for better luck tomorrow, 14 W, feeling very munwell.

M^^ tmS11 .Fine morniAng. Sent boys out again to look for elephant,
Have just heard that the 2r, .and Ilo de have not as yet ot an elephant,
although they have seen several lots of cows, Boys came in at 3,30 with.
news of 2 big bulls aad 25 cow- about 10i miles off. f.ut as a storm came
on I decided to go off oarly tomorrow morning, o ffr. N, has had a bad
attack of sun and been. unwell .for some days,

crossing the ilzoa River which was deep owing to yesterday's rain saw a
cheetah on an antill which I shot, We then went on to ore the ..
elephants had been seen yesterday bau found they had cleared. Followed
them up for some hours and found they had turned and gone down to the
Kfoia which ihey had crossed* The river here being very deep, we were
not able to follow* hot a 30" waterbuck and returned. to camp at 1.30.
mud ,N. no batter,

W as 2 Fine morning. Elephant were calling round camp in the
night, The boys. woke me up to go and hear them, 1,4 cern; worse so I
have sent off 3 lots of boys to try and find the Br., 11eiphants quite
close but I can,' leave i,

Thta c. t Fine mormnng. W,, seems much better this morning ,
Elephants around again last night. A great pity we canxt go after them.
Boys cane in without having found the Dr, and report having come across


elephant a hour way .This seemed too good to let slip, so I asked W,
if I should go., He was agreeable so I mounted the vhite ponv, took
U14a 450 and my *5T77 4 or 5 boys including one of those who had seen the
(? Bullifante) and started out after them, We struck their trail about
an hour from camp at about 3,30 We followed on till about 5 without
apparently getting much closer, As I knew that it would be getting dark
before lone, I halted the boys and cantered on ahead to see any sies of
tbhem down a slight dip to which we were coming* The trail led me all
over the places but I was able to canter c quickly as, although the grasc







was very long, a high 'road had been cleared by the elephants' passage,
where the ground was beaten down flat. Cantering along I was suddenly
taken aback by seeing a huge elephant some sixty or seventy yards off the
trail, standing under a tree breaking off the branches and having a quiet
snaek, I, of course, immediately got off the horse (the elephant had
taken no notice of me although I and the pony rauvt have been well within
sight)o i waited a short time watching him and then 3 of my boys came up,
I sent one back out of the way with the pony and began to investigate. I
eoumld see that thil one was a gigantic cow with, I should judge about 35 Ib6
tuske Beyond her with the glas-ses I oould soe-oen brown backs and flapping
ears, l ackily there was not a breath of air stirring, so I did not have
to worry about that, cautiously made a detour round my -first acuaintance
an. got within view of the others, %ey were all a.s far as I could mnie
out, cows and youngster, Just as I was beginning to think there was
nothing for me1 I heard a branch break in the distance and cautiouely
leaving my friends I crept towards the sound1 closely followed by the 2
boys crying my gCans The boys were not, I could see, completely at
their ease, thus going into the midst of the he 'i, but all toe sane they
stuck pretty close, When we had. slo-ly dodge to -&ere we could see down
the.e slopet what a sijht m.et the eyes., elephants1. elevihants, everywhere
elephants-, tlah must have \ee- at a moderate county 2C,. 1 of course.
eagerly scanned the herd for a bull N Sot one to be seenj big cows, little
cowa., medium cows and youngsters all busy employed in stripping the young
branches fer their evening meal, Again I crept round to get a view at
another angleo another lot of elephant turned up unexpectedly on my right,
and Vtmus I found myself in the midst of the whole herd, y good luck
there was still not a breath of air stirring so that the big brutes were
quite unoonscious of the strangers in their midst, ty time was fully,
occupied in staring clear of the meandering elephants.# now dodging
behind a bush, now crawlin. away in the long grsas By this time,
darkness taso tpidly falling and I. had well nigh given up all hopes when I
espied a huge animal come out in a little clearing byD birnwelf about 300
yards awsy from me, and walltrdng steadily in m direction. By the aid of
my glasses I saw he was the long wished for bull* HTc came on and on very
slowly, bat before he was within shot I had to change my position to let a
small band of f ales and youngstere pass across1 which they .did within a


few feet of where I had been standing, aud than turned slightly and stood
between me and the on coming bull* This necessitated my again changing my
position, but eventually I got a clear sight of the bull at about 40 yards,
XIt was too dark to see my front sight but I thought it wtas good enoug to
chance so accordingly let fly both barrels of my ,577 as neir as 1 could
judge in front of the ear, The scene and noise that followed beggar'
description, cows yelled and rushed panic stricken here and there, backlwarlds
and foiarcls mashing down trees in their mad rushes, but luckily none came
directly my way, Both bullets had hit the bull, but failed to drop him


-#5 -






and. he swerved round as if on a pivot and charged straight dozn on me,
dwi.th trunk curled ears out9 adn simply shrieking with rage, I had
snmtched the second gun from my Wboy (who, by the by immediately disappeared
in a marvellous anmer) and waited for the bull to come as close as I dare
let 3Ni (owing to the dar3nows), When about 25 yards distant I aimed. at
the top of his trunk. and pulled$, a little click 'was all thle response I got,
so I iediately tried the second barrel, which fortunately for me went off
striking the monster at the base of the tunk knooking him domn. In a
second or two he was again on his leg s, but I had another couple of
ceaartridges-in and let him have both in the side of his head, This time he
went Over to rise no more1 and with a few spasmodic Tckls, he lay still,
I then had. time to look for the cause of -the rifle's misfire and found that
a faulty cartridges was the cause of the mischief, One gets a faulty
cartridge vey rarely amongst modern am-unition, tbu this one might ea%41ily
*have been the. cause of my not requiring. anyy more, good or fmllty Hotever
ails well that end well, The cows had, by this time mostly disperesed, but
there was one band. of ten or so who stood some 200 yards off apparently
wondering hat was the matter with tdhe bull, %They were evidently very
excited and one or two started trumpeting loudly, apparently having half a
mind to come charging down to investigate athe matter* I then, in my turn,
let out some horrible yells .and screeches which had the desired effect and
I was.- very pleased -hean I saw The. el.. round and. make oftf at a run after-
the others. I then approached, very cautiouslyr, my prize, b.ut although
by this time it wv.s nearly dark I could see he was dead and that he had# as
near as I could judge, ivory that must weigh aboutT 70 lbs. per tusk, # e.
was aX large elephant and looked truly monstrous in the darq., Vy two
boys returned ,. $Xii swellingg with pride,. in their Oim imagination,

having done cite as much as I had to bring the bll %11 to bag, and to show
their bravery proceeded to kick the fallen animal and to prod him witlh.
their sticks, I anticipate one wc ld have seen sone ftn if the brute
,ha us% stood up agin. I sent off one of the boys to bring up the pony
and other boy's who preseCntly turned n.p,, having nearly been run over by a
4and of oows which had passed them quite close, Wood was gathered, a fire
made, a3nd in a very few minutes, all was wnutg for the night and snacks of
elephant meat frizzling on sundry sticks stuck in the ground, before the
fire, after the perusal of which we lay down for .a well earned sleep,


*EX S.U 4: Up early, had a good look at the elephant, cut off its tail
which had some good hairs and rode back to camp, about 6 miles, to get
some food, drink and a camera, Retaied., Took sundry pictures and left
boys and tent beside the dead animal to wait 6 days, after which. the tusks
can be pulled and. not have to be cut out, Found Eiller in csmp and W,
better*

_-ft I0l*: Pine morning, In camp cleaning feet and ear of elephant,
went out and shliot congoni for men also good Kob for myself (not certain
what kind), miller staying here till the boruing Shot meat for camp.
1i seems much better,




--7-A


.r .-_.lIh Wine moving. W, much better. Miller left for down
river. Stayed in camp loafing, WN thinks he is well enough. to start
for our base camp tomorrow,, taking the dead elephant en route.,

-a0' 1: Up at 5, Left caMp 6,30 and arrived at defunct pachedorm
about 9 o'olock, Decided to stfVay here for the ni.it. W, esemns no worse
for the journey* Expect the tusks will draw tomorrow. l Have finished
cutting out. the tusks so that we can move tomorrow. They are heavier
tanw I expected., although I have not weighed them yet., The core is
extremely small for bull ivory, consequently they arc t rMuch heavier and also
more valuable, I estimate them at S0 Ibo, each' and worti .100, Schofield
-ad majorr ? called, They are c.a.ped about 2 miles away amd engaged in a
preliminay survey to farms a far as the tNzoia river StIormI in
afternoon,

.3^^B __$t Left elephant cenp at 6,30 malcin for good Iuck camp, After
we had been going for about an hour, I spotted a very fine waterbuck1 I
should say at least 33 to 34 inches, I got off and had. a long shot and
hit it pretty badly. I got a running shot eaterwardn but a nafraild I
missed, We spent about 3 hours looking for it but althou-gh 1we came
across blood we never saw the buck again. Going orn to Uiller'n S&:.wmp,
the mule and I parted oompay and he i made off in theo direction of Good Luck
Camp which he made abou-t l:-hours before me. After the mule had emitted,
I saw. a waterbuck in filler's swamp, which seemed fairly good, so I bowled
it over at about 350 yardC after hitting it five shots. It proved about
27 inches long, Arrived at Good Luck camp at 3,30, Fine weather with
shower in afternoon Grass very long,

I iii Fine mornia, Left camp at 630 aV nd arrived at Bane

other amgge and came on a giraffe feeding quite close. Let
everything alone. Then crossed back to Indians oampi They
are still there, bad luck to them and have got a couple of
teeth of sorts. Missed long shot at Tsaka on way baokq wind
being unfavourable. Shauri with Tdorobos in evening. I want
to have no more truck with Kibelelu. Serveo out two days

posho.
29. Wednesday.
Moved to my new site a rather troublesome business. Had
first to get everything across the river and then get a lot
of mad goats along. It is curious that the mysterious sick-
ness has already seized on goats brought down from Soeya
and several of my tdorobos have died and mapy others are
bad* What can be the cause I am at a loss to explain. The
lungs, liver and heart are affected. The stricken beasts
seem blind and rush about and fall down suddenly, as in a
fit. Am pleased with the spot I have chosen. Saw the kwfl
buffalo again* this morning. In spite of difficulties got
to camp br eleven.

4 Wednesday.
Not an early start, X overslept and then thero was bother
with the new men etc. However we had not far to co so it tx
did not matter. Camped close to snall thorn trees camp
but a few yards beyond under single thorn tree in a better
place* Shot a ravvy. Tired and not all well. ?ear I have
got a riff raff lot of wa wapagau i*
5 Thursday.
Off in fair time* Only 3f hou re to camp under TIhaish.amunye.
Old camp had been burht out* (Some one, either the coolies
or the kidnappers have been sticking matches into every
thing that would burn all over the pale) so c:np under
thorn tree on ban&- of river a few nmrds further on*
T shot a kanksa for t1e men.
6 1?riday.
Off early, pretty full march, about 44 to the dry spruit
before t'-e hill.* There is froah boot spoo-r on the path,
probably or the dAy b..forc yesterday, so they ,ait be too
far ahead, T am better, umich, today.
7 Saturdey.
Over:t the rin e first thing and then out across as usuinl,
took us about five hours to camp at nezt bend before
ettiking in behind big hill. Camp as usual burnt by the
railway coolie but found as good a one or better,
Found fresh spoor and went back to look for our kidnappers
but fund they had moved their oamnp today.

On over the dtony ride behind hill and ,down aain and
On. over the dtonv ridxv in 81,11
on to oamp close by grassy koppie with slender little
tree., Another pret-y full march, 1 ha a spill off my
mule dust before camp, She bolted and the god.'le turned
half round. I fell in a stony spruit and was dragged a
yard or txnw so, nevertheZes in spite of broken head and
bruised end grased side and back I am little the worse.
But alas my rifle sight is broken, though I did not let
go of it.






15
Spent the.afternoon making a new ivory front sight but
not finnished of course yet. No spoor now so the kidnappers
may be behind us. The cooliles seemra to have misssed this
camp as it hasenot been burnt. .

for p.uunae. When ptnq t'3rough the "choppy sea" I saw
that owiAg to *rot& short maroh yesterday and delays for

Tust e..fter getti-+ pn.s where e. fel. in with. the- elephant
on oir lst return journey w, out fresh spoor ad a@ s there
was a good bull I eoiAted to com. 0 a .d follow. On 3ettinrg
necr the river went to ThoU- at the drIft to which a
ame trxck led and there in the water was an elephte.nt,
and another a cow on the island. The *one in tlce river
then went up on to the island too anr I samI that it wes
a young bull. %me back and bc o ped in silcenoz; zn@4 then
went with rathilt snd Tiy two I(dorobo boys. The boasts were
now. on the fr bank, rubbing .-,inst the bole.os the palm
trees4 We crossed an, I went straight to the bull, pvaating
near the cow and to within 20 yardse. He seemed to see us
anf bean to walk slowly towarto us, Fattilli retired
with my second sun and I gave him (the elephant) as shot
in the breast, and as ho retreated another In te side.
I reviled ratbili but it turned out the beost had got






16
enough 9s? we soon heard first grunts 9nd then a roar such
.as is only made by a dying one on the ground. We soon came
to hm deed,. Teeth T reckon a little over 20 Ibs a piece
or possible nearly a frasila and a half the pair. We then
crossed back and took uip the spoor of the night and fatim
followed it far, My little 'dorobo IT.tite proving a good
spoorer.. Eventually we lost through my own fault as the
wind being deaed ft I made a fruitless detouE znid we
could not pich, it up agsin* But we '3t9.rted late :in@ the
wind was as bad as could be, an3 I don't know if we would
have ever ,one any good. Anyhow we went back at a great
pace getting back at about three, .Sigenoi behind kinockod up;
n bit tired bein.g out of practice, Teeth chopped out,
12 Thursday.
Having broken our maroh yesterday we only made a sh ort
one today as to ciut across the big bena would, be too fsar
so we did three hours to my crocodile oamp.* Soge of
yesterdays spoor here -Cloudy early and very hot after
wardss. I fear a change of weather but pray not. 1o signs
of Sambur yet* Buried teeth 7 paces back from tree.
13 Friday.
Cut across the big bend end got a bit too tar towards the
river this time mn.inag our time rather longer thnn it
ought to be4 It took us not far short of five hours, I
have to make another new foresight ma I spoilt the other
and cannot do anything with it now. Some recent spoor
about* I cant ?amit to hunt now but hope to on mry way bacltk.
14 Saturday,
Got off well, Cut along under hills, An(!7 when we reched
nearly tie point where we begin to strike across again
to the river lower down, net the first of the Sambur
(after marching 4 hours). After short shauri went on but
we were misdirected by Sasnbur 210 rot entangled in bush,
so that it took us hour longer than it ought to namely
5* for the v"hole march, Oanpe& in m.y old "plIm clump oAmp"
My coolie friend and his pals are close by and have sent






17
for two of the teeth I was promised, IHad rather strong
shauri with the Coolies and a serious talk with the
Sambur about it decided to wait here over tomorrow to go
into this matter, Weather threatens moisture I fear.
15 Sunday
Moro hauris. T2hic time had the two principAl Swahilis
in the Collies caravan. This rogue lied astonishingly,
the other is not so bad think. I put them to flight all
along the line, I decicled to wait and see if the amen sent
for the tvory would turn up (they are saird to be due) and
settle the question on their arrival However they did not
come tohy. Working at my rifle sight, Sambur brought meo
a present of sheep:- and goats, Lakwari (Jula's father)
came, Jula a t Tiorisn*. Says 5 bulls,- 3 big ani 2 snaIll
furht r on and, eblphan at swamp now but no one has dist-'
urbed them,. The teeth sent for tre some of those of last
year hley were to keep f".or me. Very hot .and steamy weather
an' a .w drops of rain from a passing thiok oloudt
Petermined, to stay over tomorrow only.
1V loninay,
As the Swhahilis who hIa gone about the tooth did not
return yesterday I determined to wait over today but go
any how tomorrow*. In ths afternoon the rnesssngers turned
up but without any ivory, It seems the Ndorobos were only
playing the fool with the Swahilis to get presents out of
them so all the fuss has been about nothing tall.
The Coolies partsry now s-y they will start back the day
after tomorrow a.a they say they are short of food. Gave
themann asses load of beans. We rarted on affectionate termw,
I. a wnd the Coolie,
Thls ant his father here. Thy will meet me in the morning
aned Tla will go on with me. They say there are five bulls,
thres larte ond two snvell head, I think I hvwo got my rilfl..
to shoot alright again at last, Save the Samba waze who
had given me goat some cloth, and said I would deal on my
way bacck. The ivory shauri has now righted itself.

after waiting q-.nd trying around. for a better chance I
tried for the forehead shot through the bullrushes and
ot in-t a snap when he turned. He tell twice but went off.
We then went up river an9 found one finic bull with lovely
lons, teeth digging roots in t'Ie open all alone. After
crossing river T got close up cnd after w:tit for his
to turn mot him tVrough the heart s .d ho tell after quite
a ehIrt sprint. After we had zonae close in and were
staadng talin. ho suddenly got up. This looked rather
Sapaling but I sat down and foiled him with a shot in the
brain, Teeth Sfeet Sino>9s outside lip1 but not very
thick only 197 inches,
We then want into the e1 3Toran, aft.r reorosinz river

apparently) being outside by himself, Then I 'ot near
tle tusks were hic]loen by bushes and I could not tell
which was the one with the lonx white ones of several
standing together, They seemed to be moving towards
the cover close by end T aicksd the big rest standing
suitably for my first shot. Than I gave the outsider
as he ran straight away a stern shot which disabled him


breaking his hip. Then with my second gun had at the others

anothe..r a little further on, Another stood just tsnaide
and I uaedd a good many cartridrges finishing, him oft.aa

several short moves9 he turned a little an I Iot him
down. Then went back and finished oPf t.he disabled one

Cam'ed today above the bank instead of in the river bed.
The new member bf the caravan came along alright (rather
slowly) and gave no trouble. He now drinks milk out of a
dish greedlily. Got the teeth.
19 Sunday.
On to "tion- Csmp", where we had carped the day I shot the
bull on the way up last safari. About 4 hrsa A few drops of
rain but not enough to hurt. I shot two kankas close to
oamp by Mista:e, not knowing the first was down and think-
ing to finnish it. No spoor in the country now. One of my
passenger's wives (the TCdorobos returning with me) is in
an interesting condition and on the point of a crisist
Under the otiroumstances nothing for in in charity but to
halt tomorrow.
20 Monday .
Remained here all day hut nothing happened So we are to
trek again quietly tomorrow. Rather showery morning.
Tn the afternoon I went to look for a buck and found a
c"Imp of Swahili traders with some cattle and a lot of
Wa-rikuyp. One Hamisi somebody y or other is the leader
and Simbs is in his service. Going to trade with the
Sambur.
21 Tuesday.
rid a short march of about four hours and came down to the
river again (after cutting inland) at a very nice spot to
campt where there is a flat bank and fair grass. Trees
chiefly palms but two or three others by my tent. The
event actually happened today so no treoking tomorrow.
Showers in night. 5 days posho.
22 Wednesday.
Remained for the sake of tie Ndorobo mother. Rather showery
morning. No game here now. Plerhants gone too but not long
ago.
23 Thurs'hay.
Another shortf march of barely three hours across a good
straight cut through bush coming down again near an old






30
hunting camp of mine at a nice place where river is rapid
anA makes some islands by small cbhnnels and there is good
grass. Rocky ground behind. ?To game but spoor of sea cow.
Curiots rapids just above where river goes through trough
in rooks not more than ten feet wide, with holes in each
side for tying roles for bridge. Goats lost but found again
24 Friday.
Today we ought to have made the camp by the grassy knoll
with the slender trees in 35 hras. but got wrong and too
far to the right and mitook another knoll which also
had the same slender trees, but was far back from the. river
from the right one. This blunder threw us a full hour out
of our course and T had to strike down almost at right
angles to get back to the river it reasonable time. We
camped about half an hour beyond our kopjie and between
our down camp and the "eland" one. Lorian my little kanka
nearly knoeoked up today and in consequence our progress
was very slow and we were altogether about five hmrs from
camp to emp., The young Ndorobe mother alright
I went out and shot a kanka and an impala, both poor.
Two goats missing. lo rain. Camped on a little green knoll.
25 Saturday.
Only moved ecmp about hr. so as to shorten the next
march a little and give Lorian a rest as he is weak after
some medeoine I gave him and fear him knocking up again.
A sea cow had becn seen near camp so I went up the river
to look for it and on the way back tetite spotted its
head lying in. the water behind a bank of watergrass out
in the middle of the rivor. As it was getting on, in the
afternoon thought it would move so crept opposite and
waite ,d and before long it began to yawn and I got my,
chance and killed it with a shot below the ear as its
head was aloft. Went for ken but Fathili had to swim the
channel alone as no one else would venture. Ue tied a
cord to ito forefoot and we got it over and rolled it
out successfully.. Meat we brought to camp but it had






31
hardly any fat. It was covered with wounds, some very
severvb and it tsat have had a terrible beating from a
rival. A small bullT I think tle sea cows of the Uaso -
'lyiro are a small race, T'ecide to rest here tomorrow for
the saTe of my zebra* We are camped where we camped with
Lamutulel's party on my first trip down to the Loriana,
nearer the hill than my other camps. Rather a nice place
with good ras now.
26 Sunday.
Halted here again today. I want to rest Lorian and the sea
cow gives an excuse. Pleasant weath,.er and rain has hauled
of again. 6 days posho.
27 Monday.
On again over the ridge behind the big hill and down to the
river again. I had crossed the dry spruit near which we
generally camp and was going on a little further when there
was a great fuss and shouting at our rear about "waung
Net having lost any wazungu I was going on all the same;
but Iuru oaae on and said it was the two filibusters he
had seen j so I camped*tsxkY h .1 water I sent Turu to
look for these whitemen and he brought them back with him.
They are now quite by themselves, all their native attends
ants having either been killed or deserted them. They seem
rather s orry for thems&&ves but afraid to go back now.
It may be put on. T don't know. They sleapt in camp, and
want me to try and get word for them whether they can go
down without incurring too heavy a sentence. I went out
for a buck but am shooting badly. Whether it is my ftult or
the riVles I 4ont know. Shot two walleri but &ost one and
had to give the other three shots. Heavy storm of rain in
the night.
28 Tuesday.
The sebra came along so slowly today that I found we could
not possibly get along through the whole normal march so
we camped at the dry spruit near the rocky kopjie about hat
half way, getting rain wate r in pools.







I went out ana shot an oryx after a most careful and
successful stalks but T shot wrong again somehow and after
two bullets it still went a long way and eventually had
to be finished off where it was lying after being
followed up.
29 Wednesday,
TVid the other half of the march today over the ridge and
to the dry sand snruit where the path touches the river
again. Went out once more and LM ..I made a bad shot at
an ngoli this time; and broke its shoulder with only a
front shot. Eventually lost it after sending for the dog.
Am not very wel1.. Headache and eyes sore. Mosquitos bad
tonight.
30 Thursday.
3ust managed to get past Zsishamunyi today but the pace
was cruelly slow, and I ocmped half an hour short of our
usual place, Grasm not so forward as near Loriano Looked
for the filibuster' s crossing lace where they say the
river can be crossed dry shod. Found where it may be
crossable when the river is low*
lst. Friday. December 1904.
Today Fathili could not get Lorian along atall, so after
some time T sent for a pole to be out intending to have
him carried in a sheet, but before one was brought I
started driving him myself and we made quite good progress
until rain threatening compelled me to camp after some
three hours or so at a new spot where there is another
Somali camp, about an horr short of my usual camp at the
angle of the river whne we strike behind the ridge. Went
out and shot a grawvy. Showery weather aid very threatening.
2 Saturday,
Cme aloa)g again slowly and should have reached our dttft
before the rain which came on and forced us to eamp in a
hurry while we were in a not very good place. Got wet but
nothing is damaged. Ierumyane and others cae to ca~p,
Very heavy clouds and storms around, 5 days posho,

3 Sunday.
I made the ridiculous mistake of passing our drift and g
getting nearly half way to* the old one, and had to turn
back. t was as well though as I should anyway have gone on
to look for ienmp site not wishing to sit down along side *k
the Coolies show which* is in t1e old spot, Camped a little
way back up the slope where it is drier ground and I got
across with my gaxt own gear, through much water in the
river and pitched my tent in the old site. No bad news here
except one cow has died and a couple of goats. Have been
seedy these three or four days.
4 Monday.
SMany shaurias. Inkukoi talked of leaving my IraXl. I tell ha
he is at liberty tO please himself. Wrote to THaywood and
Tate, letters to go by two of my Adorobos to Teto alias
Nyeri, alial Tdoro. Other messengers to go to Gwargesae''

5 Tuesday.
Larumany and r aai started for Nyeori. Buried 5 bull teeth
td 2 small kalashaa in pit here. I went to shoot mear and
had a rather interesting morning. Fiat shot a gravy and a
little further on x S*SSXk put up a cheetah and three cabs.
The oaha were big (half grown or nearly)! the mother
followed them stanAing now and then to look back and i made
a good shot and tilled her.. Just beyond when we were looking
for the oubs I found, a dead rhinooerous just dead. On
examining it I found both it* foreloge frightfully lacerated
low down and the wounds had apparently now mortified.
I could see no toher wounds on it. It must have been caught


by a orooodUS in the rigrf. I wonder if it killed the oroo?






34
Later I shot two waterbuck cows but one did not fall; and
on following f the blood spoor we oame on two rhinos. I
shot the big one. Plenty for all hands. The cheetah swayed
with lion flies,
6 Wednesday.
Wrote to bagge giving an account of the Somali safari.
Began new fly for my tent. A few drops of rain here only.
Sent Kibilelu and Letite to Gwargess,
7 Thursday*
Writing xt amid many interu#fions, letters sent to Naivasba
Tandikos and sogis being put in order, An embassy of four
El Morana from Iaivasha came to make shauri with me.
Hearing that the Masai are to be moved, their kraal of
seven males want in the event to come to me. 5 days posho.
8 Friday,
Finished letters to Mrs. Lindsay, MaoOleod, Millais, my
tailors, Gitbet the Crow, Jim, S.M.& Coo Collyer and
S*Pry to whom I send this time. Gave the Naivasha men a
goat to eat*. Kibelelu returned from Gwargess, says no
elephant close about, but the Ndorobos are afraid to leave
the hills. There have been two white men with a safari at
Sain, who asked for ivory, and being given the teeth of 4
cow0 0 and two pots of honey put the whole lot in
the fire' They were then brought five more pots of honey
ahd these they accepted and gave the lidorobos ten goats.
Fathili says they must be Judi's killionaires (Rothschild
party)#
9 Saturday.
Sent off Bilali and John to Naivasha for nails, Ftraji
going with them to be discharged. Finnished sahauri with
Naivasha men, Gave assent to their request for permission
to come here when they are shifted but cay we oan finnish
our shauri when I omoe down in about three utnths. Nanes of
these Masai are Rampe, Nomen, Gimpai, Juwe; their fathers
name Lobojogi. Counted goats and sheep here all correct.

10 December 1904 Sunday.
This is Saken Kuri so went across the river to easlamiya
the gentlemen there and took trifling presents of eatables.
I ear marked all the goats there except eithteen which I
brought over and gave away to various inmates of my kraal
here, Got a headache with walking in the hot sun and
stooping too much. Sukwakos and Legenoi started early for
Kisima.
UI Monday.
Went across the river again and divided goats and sheep
among many of my Ndorobo who were anxious to have some to
take care of (and milk). Headache bad again. Storms flying
about.
12 Tuesday,
Went out North of river to hunt for meat for the afarix
and Ndorobos. Headache bad. Cant see to shoot well. Get a
Kanka after much bungling and aoet an oryx. Wee-my followed
some of the porters with loads across the river thinking
no doubt we were moving, and then went to see the Swahili's
dog (whioh had previously comoe across after her). Noticeing
her absence at once I sent people to look for her. They
chased her from the Coolies camp, she jumped ijto the river
below the drift, was carried right over the lurking crocodile
that has been there lately and was at once siezed. Her end
has come.I had been dreading something of the kind for long
for she had become too dear to me and I felt it must come to
this eoojer or later in soe form or other. One more assed
to the list and I think of all, the most deserrvedly prized.
I am quite out of sorts. Made preper^tione for moving across
river tomorrow. Hand Lorian over to 'vamas care. The Coolies
left for Teto. 6 days pooho. I am very hot. Rain in the
neighbourhood, though less than before, and none here for
some days.
13 Wednesday.
Moved across to Nort babk of river. Still seedy. No signs






36
of &ukwaaos by evening, so I decide to wait another day*.
I think I really felt diaincl ined to move being out of sorts.
14 Thursday.
Went out and shot a kankaall right, and then went on and
fired several long but apparently futile shots at another
which went away apparently untouched*. I wish I knew whether
it is myself or the gun that is responsible for this now so
common, unaccountable waste of ammunition and accompanying
anAoyance. It was a mistake not to trek as arranged today.
The time hangs terribly heavy and the delay has been produ-
ctive of nothing but irritating incidents. I shall go tomorrow
whether messengers back or not, Rain seems to be disappearing
now. Lorian seems quite reconciled to his new surroundings
and has taken kindly to his narse In evening Larunanye
and Mama i oame back from Te-o alias Nyeri with a note for
me from Captain Law to say Haywo&d absent in the Meru district
looking for the "Settlers twain"' I told them to take this
reply on 4o show to the settlers the day after tomorrow.
No signs of Lukwakoe.
15 Friday.
Off by 5.30. 4ihrm. to Kalami. I shot an oryx close by.
16 SaturdAy.
Got a first rate start about the same time as yesterday
to the big kurunga by the pillar kopjies. I took a walk to
look at the line of route for tomorrow as I want to go tf
through to where we left Lamutulels party two years agxo,
a way I have not been before. Saw giraffe in all directions
today from the kopj&e behind oamp. I did not wmolest any.
Spoor of a bull or two only about a day old. Passed a herd
of bull elands on the way.
17 Sunday.
Get away before 5.30. Soon came upon spoor of two bulls
of yesterday y evening, It followed the path in Vhe direction
we are going. After two hours still with the spoor we came
to a good sized pool and I decided to camp so that 1
might be free to follow the spoor. There was a lot of







37
game close about the pan which seemed ux very tamet
giraffe, kanka, zebra (burchelli) granti. I shot u. zebra
before emaping as they coame close and it would be handy ai
meat for the mens After a cup of tea and without waiting
for the tent to be pitched, I went off on the spoor. We
followed at a good round pace for about three hours on end.
It kept straight on, mostly along an elephant path, without
stopping and was still apparently yesterday evening's; so
we had to 6ive in. Those bulls must have been close to camp
yesterday and we may have passed within smell of them
ourselves, It is most disappointing: they have clearly been
alarmed and have treoked. Shows how careles;a we are not to
follow the spoor even a little way to see more about it.
Tired one of my heels having been blistered by a kIot in my
soot. A long hard tramp. Saw several rhinocerous and many
herds of giraffe.
18 Ybnday*
On to the rook hump near the kopjie where I parted with the
Ndorobo company two years ago. About another 4*hrs. The aill
rook holes bayve sufficient water. M Xydorobos went out to
look for spoor but saw none, I went alone to look at another
rook bulge. I shot a walleri on the way. Saw three rhino
there. Not feeling well. Karogi who was lamad yesterday has
to be packed on a donkey. Rain in night. 6 days posho.
19 Tuseday.
Mueh rain during last night. Did not oa u!til past 5 and
when half packed up it looked so threatening that we pitched
again. Wise decision. Soon came on to rain and continued
off and on (mostly on) all day, some of it very heavy and in
the afternoon a severe thunderstorm. Nevertheless I went out
for meat and shot a giraffe near the kopjie I went to
yesterday. /y Ndorobos were o.t all day towards hills but
report nothing but very old spoor. Nothing for it but to
keep on (weather permitting) for SI Gereh or elsewhere.







38
20 Wednesday.
Rained most of last night U.nd well on into this morniLng so
I did not even get up until what is, for mae, an extravagantly
late hour nowdays. Did not think of tracking today. This rain
is most favourable now it v4ill give us plenty of water every
where, Cleared up in afternnon to a fine night.
21 Thursday.
Made a good march today leaving my former elephant camp where
Mbididini lost himself to our right. We kept parallel withJ
the hills and camped after five hours Going at the edge uof
whLa vaf.lley where are shallow pools of rain water., I went out o
prospect. Came upon spoor inspire of Kihelelu'a certainty
tytt there could be no elephants here now in oonsequenoe of
rain; and on turning bazk we saw several balls standing.
I had only my Mannlioher but went to have a look at them,
I found their position unfavorable for risking a trail of
risking my tiny bullet against their maasive b.alk, so came
away. -
22 Friday.
Off at- 6.30. Struck straight for the place where we saw the
bulls yesterday. They had come upon our spoor and started
oftf at a run, but only for a short way. Then they kept
slowly on, sometimes feeding or standing. We followed all
morning and soon after noon came to a pool where they had
drunk and bathed. After that they changed their direction
and we were just taking up the soor when one was seen
standing alone behind us. Went round to get wind right
(luckily he hAd not scented us) and killed him without difficu
-ity. A yoang bull with tusks about 401be. apiece I say.
But& while after this straggler six others had been seon
ahead, and moving on after we ihad cua off his tail we took
up tthe spoor dAguin, but made slow progress owing to aome of
yesterdays oonfasing aiatters.






39
Later a herd of giraffe took fligrtt and gallopeed off ahead
and just after w e saw some of our elephants making back at
a good pace away on op o0.r left and almost to leeward, We
had a good run bok to cut them ouf and Succeeded in getting A
in front of two and I got a go.d passing shot at the last,
a big bull going slowly, and dropped him only some fifty yards
on. I cut off his tail before he was dead and hurried on,
not stopping to examine his teeth (I only saw one and that
was trick but short), to look for the others. But they
seemed on t eC go again and we never sighted them, As the sun
was getting low and the camp a long way off, and the lephants
still keeping out in the opposite direct ion, while we were
all tired and the boy Kiriba was lost, having run away from tk
the last elephant, we gave it up# and made for camp, getting
there some -jhr. before sundown (earlier thar-n I had expected).
Perhaps I ought ot have followed further: but I am ive tired,
anyhow, after llhrs, hard work, The excitement of tVie actual
encounters take it outa of one. Happy at las t this evening
once more.
There is a great extent of bush, not dense, bat fairly close,
in this neighbourhood., It seems altogether an elephant
country.
23 Saturday.
Sent men to get fat and great. They bro'.ght nothing but fat.
My Ndorobos went on to look for water o camp at and found
a good p&o4 a little beyond the ridge on which I shot the
elephants. I wont out for .. ride in the morning and m anaged
to iaiss a gravvy; but it w:.a all part of a stroke of good, luck
for I saw two Ndorobos beyond Mand wont and met t and
brotight them back into camp and had a shauri. They know of
no elephants in the neighbourhtod they say,. They went home
to o.ll others to come and sleop at my c,,itp and go and eat
the elephants. I had a rest today which I needed.

of frilled seed of a lovely orimsoo colour, The Ndorobc
family followed us* They are a poor miserable crew. 6 days
posho.
25 Monday. :, :
Off before 8 un. One of the local ifdorobos with us. First
struck for a kopjie to our N. and climbed it but could ses.
nothing. Then cut through bush towards rngo. Struck the
spoor of three bulls and followed for some three hours.
Latterly it wound about in S. fasht&on backwards anMd fozwards.
Eventually we came to where they had been staadig azid pot
our wind and gone off with a great rush dovra wind a-gain,
No 6ood following now so tried again towards mountain.

up in hollow of rocky part. Also many pools not far off
and other rain w.ter in the neighbourhood. Some spoor rjetn
not far off up stream. Buh seems ideal for elephants.
Camp similar to my ancient i1 ]3ooi one.
27 Wednesday .
Off by aunrise. Soon eare on fresh spoor I orht of spruit
Aifter following a quitse a LLor'G timie orna up with tli
bulls (there proved to be five, evidently the remains of
my former covey of 7). One showed itself and I shov it

8eoond tge best I could see, and I believed of the lot now-
soon feL,,








After seeing that the others had kept on I sent back to camp
for men to cut the meat. Then we followed some little way
but found that they had kept on down wind, so gave it up
after seeing a blob of blood at one spot. I think I was very
lucky to get another brace today out of this covey. Went
back and had a rest this afternoon. I 'ut the best at 501bs.
a piece, the small one less than half that. Plenty of fat.
28 Thursday.
Nuru went to get out the first brace's teeth. They quite
came up to my expectations when weighed. I went on with
yesterdays spoor, but we had trouble to carry it on and left
it. Keeping on up towards hills we came on spoor of cows,
apparently one bull with them. ,Vind being with us wewent
off t. left until near hill beyond and eame round and back
up wind. Soon came on spoor of one or two and then heard them.
Found cows standing in thI-ick bush and went back and on again.
Heard more and went in again with t'-e same result. Then gave
it up and came back across spruit. Nuru says that the Ndorobo
say there are still bulls behind us.
29. Friday.
I role taking Fathili and Letite (Kibelelu, as ueual when
much fat about, sick) and went to explore the country ahead.
After about 2jhrs. through bush country heard donkeys bray

and came out into open and saw stock and natives. Got one of
the latter to take us to the kraal and it proved to be tiha
of my dear old fried Lamuri. We had quite affectionate
embrace on meeting. After a friendly chat with them, he and
others came with me. Heard details aboit the Somali doings.
They killed a great number of elephants at Marsabit. They
accompanied the Sambur to raid the Borana and they (the Somr
alis) took all the captured stocko They commandeered 50
donkeys from the Sambur and a large number of camels from the
Rendili together with ten horses they had captured from the







42
Borana. They gave some goats for the Sambut to scramble for
out of the captured Borana stock. The Abysinians have since
driven the Sambur out of Marsabit. Laigwese says he find me
a guide to take me to the lower Seya (which goes on N.)
where are bulls in extensive bush. I said I would move to
near theit kraals in a few days.
30 Saturday6
Off by sunrise striking S.W. Soon found spoor of 3 bulls
(the same old 3 survivors) and followed back across spruit
and through bush where we had come up with the cows, and on
skirting round foot of hills till at lenght the. struck up
the kloof out of which comes the stream, and up which a
sxax2x path leads through a port to the otier side of the
range. We then gave it up as they are clearly trecking for
pastures new. Pound a lovely little pearling stream up there
under the hills, but a little lower down the bed it had
disappeared. A hard day of ten solid hours through much
dense bush. Tired and backaches with constant stooping.
I don't believe there are any iore bulls in this neighbourhood.
6 days posho.
31 Sunday.
Name of Randili who came to wee me today and to bring me a
kalasha:- Hobotsha, His kraals name Elegun, his brother who
came with him: Woril4e
They say they have come from the headman to salute me and
to make friends etc. etc. I gave them some half dozen yards
of maraduf. Hobotsha refused to take his kalasha away but.
he says he will give me a small bori. Tthey say the old men
will cote to meet me at Laigwesi's the day after tomorrow.
I rested today. Nuru cut out teuth of two last bulls (the
bigger weighs less than I reckoned). Fixing the teeth for
packing.

1. Jawryo Monday.
As the teeth had to be put in sor&s after the stumps
dried, I went out and took a round back through bush; but,
as I had already concluded, I found no spoor since the
remnant of the covey treckedo All ready now for moving
tomorrow and glad I shall be to leave this stale camp now,
as it has become foul and the flies are a perfect plague.
2 Tuesday.
Trecked to the Sambur kra.;a.1 and thence on, a long way beyond,
to a gully where there are pools and watur also in the sand
of the spruit bed. Over 5 hours altogether. Country here
much drier. It is hilly and wve have to camp in a rather
disagreeable place Lamuri met us opposite the kraal and
guided us on As it seems he has no guide ready for us and
the information about water in the ElGere valley is uncertain,
I decided to go on at once and prospect ahead. I took
Fathili and by tow Ndorohos and struck across through the
bush (thick and very bad going) for the valley opposite the
Doto mountains. We got down late in the afternoon, having
only started from camp at 2P.M. and in struggling through
dense cover at bottom stumbled into the midst of a herd of
buffalo, which gave us a scare. Then followed valley down
until close on sundown., but found no water: turned back and
made in opposite direction till quite dark, when we managed
to penetrate the thiicket and strike the bed of the main river!
Pathili had discreetly only brought one water bot-tle, and no
satchel (containing snake kit). We were all thirsty from very
fast pace through very bad ground in hot afternoon sun. I
decided to sleep where we were and we lay around our fire.
I passed the night comfortably enough. It was cool and
comfortable laying on the sand. As the night went on one
got nearer the fire.

3 Wednesday.
As soon as light enough we started back tocamp, by better
route than yesterday and got in about 9. Nuru had foolishly
(but in the goodness of his heart) started early to look
for me ahd did not come back uutil about noon. I feel none
the worse for the night out, after having plenty of liquid
and something to eat and a nice bath. Some El Moran came to
guide us, but as they daid they did not know the water I sent
for the old man himself and he eame with another ahd sleapt
in camp prepared to go with us in the morning. He says he
will show us water a march ahead and then tie will prospect on
w together.
4 Thursday.
Early off as usual. Kept further to the right than I had
gone and got down to the valley by not a bad path. Then
turned up and struck up a side valley leading to Ndoto
mountain and were taken to a well (about 20ft. deep) some
distance up it. Camped there in a rather nice camp after
about 4thrs. Nuruu cleaned out well and we got plenty of
good water, very slighty brackish. A Sambur brought a I
Ndorobo and says he will show me a bull. One is said to
live by itself and always keeps to the same part. There is
also a covey of 6 (4 big and 2 siall) in the neighbourhood.
Kibelelu and Nigwesai went out to look at water ahead, but
returned to say the well is quite dried up. The Sambur and
T.dorobo here all say there is now no water up the river
between here and Ngare Narok which is much too far for us
to possibly reach.
5 Friday
Ngwesai went home. I shall probably have to go back the
way we came. I went out with my new Ndubaboguide and the
Sambut who had brought him. We went to a koppjie and found
some more Ndoroboe already on it watching a single bull
feeding in an open narrow valley right below. He had quite
poor teeth. I wnet down and shot him, though the novelty







45:
of having a lot of strangers watching made me very nervous.
Afterwords we wandered about to look for more: but we only
saw two days old spoor and out Sambur had a great many too
many words and it got late and at last it was decided to
gdve up for today and go back tocamp. Got other about noon.
Must hunt out this district and then go back by our outward
path to somewhere whence we ean get through to the Ngare
Narok or the Ngare Sobia or both. Sambur brought a few sheep
but are nto as .easy to deal with as those of Lorian and I
am not trading now. Ndorobo says he has seen the real
solitary bull this afternoon. 7 days posho0
6 Saturday.
Off by sunrise as usual when hnunting taking the Ndorobo
only today (the Sambur having gone home); hope high to find
the genuine "rogue" this time0 We found indeed some of
yesterdays spoor and the Mdorobos cutting up the one I
killed yesterday say elephants came close to tneir camp
las night; but our guide failed again to srow us anything
but spoor, mostly of yesterday. The spoor of a small bull
we followed buat after a while the Ndorobo said it was
useless keeping on as it was going towards a kraal and it
would not stand, moreover the wind was bad. Eventually we
came baeko I told NUru I would like him to geo tomorrow and
prospect for water up the valley0o .
7 Sunday.
Off again betiles. Another fruitless days labour in the
bush. We almost met the elephants qMite early, but unluckily
the wind was with us and they made off, and after going
towards the dead elephant got the wind of the Ndorobo camp
and ran harder, turning and twisting about. Seeing this and
as it appeared to be hopeless to keep on after them under
the eircumstanees, we left the spoor and struck away for
beyond where we had been yesterday, but only to find their
Isat ita spoor. Thete seem to be no others in the






4f


neighbourhood. I an rather tired of thls run of bad luck
and tell the Adorobo that he had better go and seek the
bulls himself tomorrow, and bring me word when he has
found them. Nuru started early with .ibilelu and 2 or 3
men to look for water up the river (f).
8 tlonday.
I rested in camp, a good deal bored. gturu returned at
TO A,1. Hed found a little water yesterday at 2P,. he
says and then returned to loeep at the water having found
no signs of any more*. My dorobo local came again and said
he cannot find spoor of the elephants* Hie went out again
with Tietite to look in another direction. feoth of my one
bull got out and brought in. They seem a poor reward for
so much work.
9 Tuesday.
As the teeth have to be fixed in sofi, I went out again.
Took a long weary round, but the bulls havo left the
country no spoor newer than two days old. Gave the
Sambur and the 'Tdorobo each five r ngs brass wire.
TO Wednesday.
Trecked back to the camp in the glly where the Samburs
cattle drink. Sent for ,Igeserrsi.
11 Thursday.
On mat Sambur kraal. Old men came and met me and we had
a shauri. They say t-ey went to be my children. They gave
me a sheep and nat 5 goats and much milk. &$geserai came on
to camp. "Tator still sufficient for us in spruit. ilad to
searchn for some for donkeys. HaId long talk with 7igesorai.
12 rrid y. e
iuru went taking r Vibilelu to wen whether still plenty of
water in pools ahead, ?ound there is enough. I went up the
valley to look for spoor. Tound only that of some little
herd of cows and calves- no bulls- I am rather unwell. Old
ifesersi went home. 6 Thys poshoM






47
13 Saturday. ..
Treeked on to second pool, stopped half an hour short of
the first camp whence I got the bulls. 4j hours going.
Found very little water and that very muddy. uru and
,ibilelu went to seek '2orobos but ,id not find any.
They ho.-.erver fund good pool of water quite near. I
looked for meant bu found nothing. Tracks of a herd of
elephant pas.Bing towards taragus. since we passed here
before. .
14 Sunday.
I moved early to 'Iuru'as pool, Ihour ot lit tcle more, and
caaped. 'Turu went on at once with "ibilel" and Ffthili
to look fro idorobos, prepared to sleep out. I took a
round and looked for game but found none. Followed spoor
of a single 'Tdorobo but it led nowhere. One however came
to camp having heard Turu's guns yesterday. Says elephants
at rtvre isae.A
15 iondaoy.
Had to wait for iuru to come rck. lie did about ten am
with 2 mor ldorobos but no fresh news. The old man who
carn yesterday says he can show us a good wMP pool to camp
at near Paragusa.s
16 Tuesday.
Trecked again about 41 hours to a place under the h119 ,
having kept close to th-em, where the old :dorobo showed us
a small nkurunga. We camped though not well pleased. He
later showed us another one a long way on along a bad track,
We water our cattle. I then resolved (another hole proving
dry) to go on tomorr-ow to our old camp where there is a
sort of in the rook. The sick porter died this morning.
17 Wednesday.
On through part of the Paraw usa valley, the old man taking
us a bound about road and trying to induce me to oamp at
a, mudrly puddle, arm< then 7o and looi at another, but" I was
not taking any more of his big pools. Then on thro. sch the
hills @'W by a bad path to our old camp opposite Thargess.

round water there dried up. Tiuckily we had passed a
kurun#a not far back with water, so sent back there for
-water. Beasts had drunk at pools on road and they Vere
taken and watered again in afternoon. o' id not see even
Oan old spoor. "lot any sign of elephant having beun about
tall. Cant beloivo there are any near.
18 Thursday, *
To '\arfoess Had daa unable job getting through bush to

the foot of the mountain, rribilelu taking us the wrong
r-iy, T was n.zarly gona back again when we could get no
further and co' Id find neither path nor wator, but we put
down our things and offloadod the donkeys, an- fired a shot
and sent Vibilelu an. the old man to look for Idorobos.*
They soon came back with one. He says he will show us
water anrl we went on a little wy and camped in a small
open space. tater I ane iuru took the beasts to water up
th: mountain, "cutting a path as wwe wnt, a daamhable road
and I was thankful the cow got back without breaking a log.
The water just trickles over the rock up the kloof. A long
way. The head man and others came down. They seem near
starvation point, living on a creeper which they roast an4
chew, CV ildretn look half started. Sote of these people
look hardly ashove monkey aid no wonder. They say no
elephants in the country. In fact there is not enough
water for thorn now, but the Vtapkmba have spoilt all the
country for the be n-?.ts, Had shouri and they are to take me
to Lololokwi tomorrow where they say Ioti o ter
I told them the Sambur will not attack them again and.
that they are not to kill female elephant, but they point
out that they trap them. A trying day. This water famine
is a beastly bore. 7 days posho.
19 Wridoy.
To Lololokwi in good open wtr, The big water proved to
be a small hole or two with a few buckets full only in
a narrow waste roourse through rock. CQo went on to the
cave T remebered from my first safsri in the country and







49
found plenty for us, tofay anyway, though faros have used
a lot and have a well worn path up to the oave. It took
not much under five hours. T went out for meat and got a
fau and a big calf not far off, wanting icat both for our

Short trek of barely 3 hours to 1"7,re %Tanyuki. Itx is
here that I take the aath to T.yeri, alias Teto, alias
idTorode, So T have now to separate from .uru ann4 the
donkey safari an n T accordingly decide to halt tomorrow
to arrange our shauris. Rather seey owing to the bitter
cold, Tn the afternoon, late, shortly before sundown,
three shots were fired close by, A donkey had be'n killed
by lions, the intelligent Swahili herd having tnktn his
charge into a dell surrounded by bush where a lion
happened to be lying., As it seemed unlikely that the lion
having now being scared would return before dark I hastily
set a gun making a bors around the dead donkey. Having
only *1-H carbines it was not so easy to make a satisfactory
trap as with a hammer gun: however I pleased myself fairly
well and left at dark devoutly hoping for success and.
revenge. At 7.30 while I was dressing after my bathuthe
