The most commonly seen and well-known subspecies of the African Buffalo is the Cape Buffalo.

They’re common in Eastern and Southern Africa and have garnered a reputation as being fierce, unpredictable and aggressive. They live up to this reputation as Buffalo attacks are responsible for killing as many as 200 people a year in Africa.

The Buffalo is also one of the famous ‘Big Five’ animals in Africa.
