Buffalo in the rain

Most people associate Addo Elephant National Park with elephants only, but its really so much more than that.  The park has had Cape Buffalo right from the start although they stuck to the bush and lived a nocturnal life due to hunters in the early days.  After lions were introduced into the park the buffalo changed the behaviour back to normal and visitors started seeing them more and more.  My last visit was on a rainy day and we found a big herd browsing right next to the road. 


  1. Must be great ti live so close to all these great animals.

  2. Great shot. When did Addo get lions introduced? I've never seen one there.
