Prince Joseph II. Colloredo-Mannsfeld undertook two adventurous but mainly hunting expeditions to the African continent at the beginning of the 20th century. In 1901, from Khartoum through the valley of the Blue Nile to Vad Medani, through the valley of the Rahat River to Gallabat and back. The second in 1902, again from Khartoum, along the Abar River to the Red Sea to Tokar, with a destination in Port Sudan. From his African journeys Joseph brought back many trophies he had caught, as well as live animals such as macaques.
