Drinking Buffalo

Drinking Buffalo

Not a common sighting in Pilanesberg. The Buffalo in Pilanesberg tend to keep to the western part of the Park that is not accessable by tourists. They do however come to the dams and waterholes during the dry season when water in the Park becomes scarce. This one was captured at Ratlhogo waterhole.

Yes, the buffalo in the Pilanesberg is as rare as the serval in the Kruger, so well done on capturing this one on camera!

Excellent picture of an excellent specimen! We have seen buffalo only twice in Pilanesberg and they all had small horns with small boss - this one is a real buffalo!

"It's 768 pages of the most amazing information. It consists of, well, everything really. Photography info...area info...hidden roads..special places....what they have seen almost road by road. Where to stay just outside the Park...camp information.
