I would get Safari Rifles by Craig Boddington - he goes through all the various classes of cartridges, from 22 up to the large Big Bores and their relative merits. He then looks at the different types of safari rifles fro Doubles to Bolts and appropriate sighting equipment. He then considers the different types of game and what works best, and then finishes off considering the type of rifle you should have if you are taking one, two or three rifles on Safari.

I have the First Edition - written 1990, the second in late 2013. I am not sure there is a lot to choose between them although the 2nd is expensive as a hard cover, but avialable as a Kindle edition for c£25 which is worth it.
