Although a herbivore, the African buffalo is one of the most dangerous animals in Africa! They have been recorded killing a lion and chasing lions up the trees. They are large animals with long, stocky bodies covered with black or dark brown coats. Their horns diverge downwards at the base and then curve upwards and outwards.
They are considered one of the “big five,” but sadly, it is not something to be proud of as the term is used to label the most dangerous animal to hunt in Africa.
