African Buffalo / Cape Buffalo

The Cape Buffalo chase is a very challenging hunt due to their keen senses and their black bodies are camouflaged well, a formidable challenger.

Cape Buffalo, (Syncerus caffer caffer), also called; Dugga bull / Cape Buffalo bull / Africa’s Black Death. The largest and most formidable of Africa’s wild bovids and a familiar sight to visitors of African parks and reserves. The Cape Buffalo is the only member of the buffalo and cattle tribe (Bovini) that occurs naturally in Africa. The adult buffalo’s horns are its characteristic feature; they have fused bases, forming a continuous bone shield across the top of the head referred to as a “boss”.

They are widely regarded as among the most dangerous animals on the African continent, and according to some estimates they gore, trample and kill over 200 people every year.

Cape Buffalo Hunting In South Africa

Its unpredictable temperament means that the African Buffalo has never been domesticated, unlike its Asian counterpart, the water Buffalo.  African Cape Buffaloes have few predators aside from lions and large crocodiles. As a member of the big five game, the Cape buffalo is a sought-after trophy in hunting.
