Lever-Action "Safari" rifle

I have become fascinated recently with the heavy, African game type "safari"rifles, and was wondering whether the big bore lever-action rifles which have come out recently such as the .450 Marlin, the .45/70 Marlin Guide Gun or the custom jobs from Wild West etc. are seeing much use in Africa as either back-up guns for PH's or as primary hunting rifles.

I know Teddy Roosevelt favored the Winchester Model 95 in .405 Win. on African game. Certainly the lever guns can provide a quick follow-up shot.

Thanks
