Edward, Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII), in Africa, 1928 and 1930.

Like most during that period, on his first trip to Africa, the Prince took great pleasure in hunting the African wildlife - mainly targeting the ‘Big Five’. Despite his initial enjoyment, however, after learning of the rapid decline of animal numbers, due to the increasing popularity of a new method of hunting from cars, Edward became increasingly passionate to conserve the majestic creatures of Africa. 

Upon his return in 1930, Edward took to shooting the animals again, this time, replacing his gun with a camera. He was among the first to campaign for the conversation of African wildlife, with friend, Denys Finch Hatton, and the Prince’s legacy in Africa remains today in the form of the Serengeti National Park.
