Safari season typically runs from April to September.
Although many times buffalo are spotted from the vehicle, the typical hunting method for cape buffalo is finding fresh sign from the roads and following the buffalo tracks on foot.
Although buffalo are not normally aggressive, when wounded, they become one of the world’s most dangerous game animals. They are one of the only animals that purposefully circle back on their own trail to “hunt the hunter.” The sheer menace and presence of these bad-tempered Dagga Boys make for an exciting hunt and a well-deserved trophy.
