Courteney Selous D.S.O.
1851 - 1917
Big Game Hunter, Adventurer, Explorer, Pioneer, Scout
“Mighty hunters, Dutch and English, roamed across the land on
foot and on horseback, alone or guiding the huge white-topped
ox-wagons; several among their number wrote with power and charm
of their adventures; and at the very last the man arose who
could tell us more of value than any of his predecessors."
“Mr. Selous is the last of the big game hunters of Southern
Africa; the last of the mighty hunters whose experience lay in
the greatest hunting ground which this world has seen since civilized
man has appeared herein.”
