Cape Buffalo  in Tanzania

Cape Buffalo in Tanzania

These creatures are big suckers. Off in the distance they look like cattle but when the vehicle pulls up within 3M we have a real appreciation as to their size. We are told they can be down right ornery as well. From what is said they are probably the most unpredictable of all of the animals here. We did not test the hypothesis.

They have a comical look to them with their ears pointing downwards and their horns pointing up. Their horns are massive and I would not want to carry those on my head for too long.

Pat, our guide in Botswana, gave us a list of YouTube videos to watch. Here is one called “Battle of Kruger”. It shows the conflict between lions and buffalo when the lions attack and try to kill a baby buffalo. A crocodile also makes a short appearance. Keep watching past the 2 to 4 minute mark as it gets very interesting.
