The horns are smaller than other buffalos but are still heavy. The body color can vary from a reddish brown to a deep black and both color variations may be present in the same groups.

"I booked the hunt through John Martins, the owner of Discount African Hunts. It was a smooth transaction and he provided me with good and accurate information."
"This 10 day package safari was a fantastic experience. I learned many new hunting skills and made new friends. I would go back and do it again in a heartbeat. I'm going back. That says it all. Thanks to Discount African Hunts for setting me up on a fantastic plains game safari."
"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!"
"I would Highly recommend my PH and Discount African Hunts. John got me a great deal with a top of the line outfitter. They both went out of their way to make sure my hunt and everything else about it was great."
