Buffalo gives birth in the Timbavati!

This special and heartwarming moment of a buffalo giving birth was captured in the Timbavati Private Nature & Game Reserve by field guide Morné Hamlyn.

“Other people on the game drive called in a herd of buffalo in the area. We drove to the sighting and found this large herd of Cape Buffalo close to a thicket next to a dry riverbed.”

“When we approached the herd, we noticed one female standing to the side with her back legs slightly apart. We looked and realised that we could see the feet of a calf sticking out; she was giving birth!”

“The sun was setting fast, night was coming. Night brings predators to life, so the thought of hyenas and lions passing by created a lot of tension and excitement as to what was going to happen next.”
