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