He made ​numerous trips, first in Europe and later also in other continents, on which he repeatedly wrote reports - under his own name or anonymously. Furthermore, he suggested an encyclopedia Austria-Hungary, the so-called Kronprinzenwerk, and wrote on it himself. In addition, Crown Prince Rudolf was a renowned ornithologist.

In the garden beside the factory we found the conspicuous African blue-cheeked bee-eater (Blauwangenspinte), a lovely green bird with a long tail and blue cheek stripes; a whole row of them was successfully shot at. These animals belong to the interior of Africa, they are frequent in Upper Egypt, though they never get as far as Cairo, a region that appears to them already too far to the north. On the fields, spurwinged lapwings (Spornkiebitze) were running, these lovely, typically Egyptian birds, then troops of cattle egrets (Kuhreiher); also here, like everywhere in Africa, a rich animal-life is concentrated in astonishing quantities in the stretches with plenty of vegetation and water...” (p. 58).
