Congo Buffalo

Syncerus caffer nanus

Congo buffalo, also known as the forest or dwarf buffalo, are the smaller relatives of the Cape or savannah buffalo.



Size: Shoulder Height 80 - 120cm
Weight: Male 270 - 320kg Female 200 - 255kg



The Congo buffalo is found in rainforests in West and Central Africa. About 75% of the total population are found in National Parks and protected areas.



Congo buffalo feed mainly in grassy glades or near water on a diet of grass and herbs, and also some foliage and branches.



The calves are born after a pregnancy of 10-11 months at the end of the dry season.



Although once widespread in Africa, numbers of Congo buffalo have decreased in recent years due to hunting and habitat loss.
