African Buffalo or Cape Buffalo

When we asked why the African Buffalo or the Cape Buffalo is the part of the Big 5 rather than the much larger hippo we were told that it was not just size that determined the Big 5. Big 5 is a traditional way to identify the 5 most dangerous animals in the bush. Cape Buffalo being one of the Big 5, the other 4 are lion, leopard, elephant and rhino. I have now seen 4 out of 5, the only elusive one is the Leopard. Maybe just maybe there is going to be a next time!
