Original text on this topic:
In Koes, on the southern edge of the Kalahari, I was shown bones and horns, found in quicksand, a certain evidence that the animal once lived here. About 1840, the first men had come to live here, Orlam from the Karas mountains and Berseba. They built huts on the dunes, and compelled the game to go away or to be shot. The next water was 70 km away, too far for a rhinoceros.
