Publisher's Summary

Frederick Courteney Selous (1851-1917) was a British explorer, hunter, and conservationist. Arriving in South Africa when he was 19, he traveled from the Cape of Good Hope to Matabeleland, where he obtained permission from King Lobengula to hunt in the area now called Zimbabwe. Selous explored all the then-unfamiliar regions north of the Transvaal and south of the Congo Basin, recording ethnographic notes, shooting elephants, and collecting specimens of all kinds for museums and private collections. His real-life adventures inspired Sir H. Rider Haggard to create the fictional Allan Quatermain character. 

In this work, The Lion in South Africa, he describes his numerous encounters with wild lions and notes that as far back as the 1890s, lion numbers were shrinking from overhunting.
