Dwarf Buffalo Information

The Dwarf Buffalo is found in the equatorial forest belt of the Congo and in a narrow strip of West Africa. It inhabits the rainforest of Cameroon in the deep vegetation. Dwarf buffalo, or forest buffalo, live in small herds of no more than 20 animals.  Dwarf Buffalo are principally grazers, and favor clearings within dense forest areas. Dwarf Buffalo hunting usually involves shooting at close ranges in very thick cover. Open sights or low magnification scopes and red dot sights are normally employed for this close-up hunting.

The Dwarf Buffalo is the most difficult one from the BUFFALO WORLD SLAM. Lots of people are attracted for its difficulty, but also because this hunt is a great experience. Hunting buffalo in dense cover utilizing pygmy trackers is an exciting way to hunt!

Once fresh tracks are located, the hunt will proceed into the jungle with the guide, tracking the animals. Stalking quietly and silently is essential to get a shooting chance. Sometimes the buffalo are found in the open areas during the day.

The outfitter has two color variations of forest buffalo in the area. Some a a darker more blackish color while others have more of a red tint.

"Best advice I can give is don't let the word DISCOUNT scare you. I was skeptical but I have hunted all over and I can tell you these trips are top notch! Everything was described accurately, no surprises. I took 9 trophies - almost every one made gold medal. I would highly recommend John Martins and Discount African Hunts. I already have another trip booked with them and I am looking at 2 more. I got everything I wanted and saved thousands doing it!"

"This was our first time to Africa and it was incredible. We were able to harvest all the animals on our wish list and they were fantastic quality trophies.  I would recommend this hunt as you are only about 2 hours from Johannesburg. Thanks to Discount African Hunts we connected with an awesome outfitter and took some great trophies!."

"This was my first trip to Africa and can positively say it will not be my only one. Words simply can not describe the events of the hunt.  I hunted with both longbow and compound and took a total of 12 animals.  I speak volumes to Discount  African Hunts. These guys know the ins and outs.  Thank you for my first Amazing African Adventure!"
