The formidable Cape Buffalo is one of Africa’s most challenging animals to hunt. Why? They pack massive weight, a bad temper and the impressive horn span which is a menacing danger to those in its path. While they are considered to be docile in their herd environment, when wounded, that calm demeanour changes in an instant. The Buffalo is one of the Big Five, tracking and hunting down one of these creatures is a privilege for any hunter, fortunate enough to have the opportunity.

“While an elephant never forgets, the Buffalo never forgives.
A worthy adversary for any professional hunter.”
The African buffalo or Cape buffalo is a large Sub-Saharan African bovine. Syncerus caffer caffer, the Cape buffalo, is the typical subspecies, and the largest one, found in Southern and East Africa. S. c. nanus is the smallest subspecies, common in forest areas of Central and West Africa, while S. c. brachyceros is in West Africa and S. c. aequinoctialis is in the savannas of East 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.
The art of Buffalo hunting
cape buffalo hunting
Cape Buffalo can be found on private game farms, reserves and wildlife areas throughout Southern Africa, and hunting is usually done on foot. Experienced hunters and trackers will normally pickup and follow fresh spoor from drinking points, visited during the dark hours. Taking down a Buffalo is no easy feat, these animals are fighters. When Buffalo hunting you must be prepared to let loose a number of well-placed shots before the animal goes down.
Buffalo are incredibly cunning. Should you shoot one while it is in a herd, you can expect it to run for cover, before returning to where it was shot, only to lie in wait for the hunter. These animals are exceptionally dangerous to hunt due to this vindictive trait. When you are Buffalo hunting, do not be fooled by the animal, their size does not slow them down and injuring them simply makes them angry.
Making the right decision on the company you are hunting with can make the difference in your hunting trip.

The South African hunting industry
The hunting industry in South Africa is not without its troubles. Every year the industry experiences renewed criticism. Nevertheless, hunting in South Africa is legal and is usually done responsibly. Each year thousands of hunters visit the country to experience something that they have always wanted to be a part of. When hunters come to South Africa, their hunts are well documented, a hunt is never a hidden activity.
The South African hunting industry provides significant contributions toward the economy, with conservation at the forefront of everyone involved. Hunting might continue to get negative publicity but it is something that goes a long way towards aiding conservation. Hunting keeps the population in check and creates a value system.
African hunting outfitters and companies based in South Africa are governed by strict laws and restrictions that ensure that your hunting trip is legally sanctioned.
