The Cape or African buffalo (Syncerus caffer) is an extremely large, highly sociable animal that travels in large, nonterritorial herds. Cape buffalo are extremely powerful and deadly, and can run at speeds up to 57 km/hr (Nowak, 1983). Some people consider Cape buffaloes to be the most dangerous big game animal in Africa. Even lions will rarely attack an adult buffalo.
