The Buffalo is the only animal of the Big Five not to be endangered. Across the world, there are millions of Buffalo, particularly of the water Buffalo variety. Commonly, Buffalo are used for preparing land for farming purposes and carrying heavy loads. 

In comparison to the domesticated Buffalo, the African Buffalo is a slightly different species. They are used to fight off predators such as Lions and Crocodiles, and so they can be wild and unpredictable. Game hunters often consider them to be the most dangerous of the Big Five, with Buffalo posing a high threat of ambushing and attacking hunters, but thankfully, when you go on a safari these days, the only item that will pointed at these magnicificent animals will be a camera. 

Pobjoy Mint aims to dispatch all in stock items within 48 hours.
