East Africais gifted with a variety of flora and fauna. This has called for numerous tourism activities depending on the client. Some prefer Uganda tours, Rwanda tours, Kenya tours, Tanzania tours or Congo tours. There are striking forests such as Bwindi Impenetrable, Nyungwe, among others. Besides vegetation, water bodies and wildlife are the major pulling factors of tourists into East Africa. Unlike other wildlife species, the African buffalo is a very robust one. The savanna buffaloes weigh about 500 to 910 kg, with males, normally larger than females, reaching the upper weight range. Savannah type buffalo have black or dark brown coats with age. Old bulls have whitish circles around their eyes. Females tend to have more reddish coats while the horns of an African Buffalo are very peculiar.
A characteristic feature of them is the fact that the adult bull’s horns have fused bases, forming a continuous bone shield referred to as a “boss,” which cannot always be penetrated even by a rifle bullet. From the base the horns diverge, then bend down, and then smoothly curve upwards and outwards. There are plenty of National parks and Game reserves in East Africa that have Buffaloes and these are Murchison falls, Queen Elizabeth, Nairobi, Hell’s gate, Ruaha among others.
