These enormous, frequently deadly animals that were formerly prized hunting trophies have persisted in capturing people’s attention. Buffalos have a negative reputation among hunters and other individuals who interact with them often. They can be harmful if trapped or injured since they are unpredictable.

Buffalos have hefty, ridged horns that either grow straight from the head or curve downward and then upward, and they have them on both the males and females, which on males may reach a height of 1.5 meters. The majority of the herd is made up of females and their young. Males may spend a lot of time in groups of bachelors. There are two different kinds of these groups: those with guys aged 4 to 7 and those with men aged 12 and higher. The elder bulls frequently choose solitude.


Open grasslands to dense woodland. For the savannah buffalo, an ideal environment must have a lot of grass, shade, and water. Wide open spaces and flood plains, which don’t have any of shade, are avoided. When eating, buffalo typically stay close to water and routinely drink, often twice daily.


The huge buffalo may be found in South Africa in a variety of well-known reserves, where tourists can marvel at their size and power. These reserves include the spectacular, the Sanbona Wildlife Reserve in the Little Karoo (only three hours from Cape Town), Pilanesberg National Park in the North West, and the world’s best safari destination, the Kruger National Park.

Herbivorous grazers, buffalos. They spend a significant amount of time feeding and grazing. Like cows, they spend time chewing their cud (or bolus) after grazing on grass in order to get even more nutrients from their meal.


At age four or five, females give birth to their first calf. They typically only have calves every two years, and the majority of those births take place near the conclusion of the rainy season when there is an abundance of grass, which increases the nutrition of females throughout pregnancy and lactation. The link between the female and her progeny is extremely close and long-lasting. Males do not make investments in the children they produce. Calves nurse for up to a year and are entirely dependent on their moms throughout this period. Male young depart the natal herd at the age of four, but female young often remain there.
