Calling South African help.
My bedtime reading at the moment is the great Jock of the Bushveld by Sir Percy FitzPatrick - a fine yarn with great illustrations.
Now I believe Sir Percy knows what he writes about, apart from having travelled the Bushveld he also was educated at Downside which Blognor Regis points out is also the Alma Mater of Mr Free Market and Tim Worstall and Peter Briffa. Good company then.
He talks of hunting "Lions and Tigers". My "Standard Natural History" was printed in 1931 and cost 25 Shillings, so it is of good quality, and it seems to imply that Tigers are not to be found in Africa - My Google search throws up one Tiger in South Africa doing sterling work but not herds of them wandering the bush. I have never been to the old Cape Colony so would one of my kind readers who knows more than me please enlighten me as to what, as well as Lions, he was hunting.
