I read that book years ago. Seem to remember he sat on an elevated platform in the elephant grass which allowed him to see the elephant foreheads sticking out like islands sticking out of the sea but the elephants couldn't see him or each other because of the tall grass. He thought the 256 Mannlicher* or 275* Rigby were plenty good enough for that type of shooting.

*Those were British designations for 6.5 Mannlicher and 7mm Mauser.
