Botswana. – The Cape Buffalo have a reputation for being extremely dangerous, especially when wounded, earning them a place among the Big 5. As a species they thrive in the Okavango Delta, opt to stay close to water and enjoy grazing on the seasonal floodplains. 

Large herds of up to a hundred at a time can be seen as they move between the Chobe and Delta regions and are usually a mix of females and breeding males. Older males are generally forced out of the group and tend to be solitary or form bachelor herds. These old guys are often referred to as ‘dagga boys’ and you do not want to meet them on a walk …

These are a few we caught in the tall grass on our evening game drive.
