In fact, this enthusiastic quail hunter has killed both record-book-size hartebeest and wildebeest for lion bait, but then showed no interest in even having a picture taken to document these kills. During these safaris, Bwana Babu developed a keen insight into the workings and abilities of a number of native trackers.

Bwana Babu has developed a close friendship with a number of these individuals, especially a man named Makanyanga.
