the African Buffalo, also commonly referred to as the Cape buffalo (Syncerus caffer), is a large African bovine but slightly smaller than the wild water buffalo. Although it looks like a cow, it is never domesticated because of its unpredictable nature and it is regarded as a very dangerous animal because buffaloes are responsible for over 200 human deaths every year.
The buffalo’s horns are its distinctive characteristic; it had fused bases which is a continuous bone shield referred to as a “boss”!
They are also part of the big five and you will find herds of them in Kidepo national park on a Uganda safari. They are also part of the common animals in Kidepo.
