There is something wrong with you that you occasionally make these kind of posts. Waterberg National park isn’t a “well considered breeding program from South Africa”. It’s an isolated herd of wild buffalo on 100,000 acres with great genetics and are foot and mouth free. All information on waterberg National park is public before you make these kind of posts including game sales from the park. I’ve also been there and am going to assume you have not.@machinistbutler-
A very special buffalo.
The article prompts me to make a few comments, because it gives the impression that there are wild, free roaming buffalo in Namibia.
All these buffaloes are the product of well-considered breeding from South Africa. All buffaloes live behind fences, all buffaloes that live there have previously been examined for foot and mouth disease.
If there were you would not be allowed to sell all of Namibia its produced meat in the world.A total disaster for the meat industry.Below the Red line, a more than 1100 KM long veterinary fence, there must be no free roaming buffalo.
Above is a buffer zone and only in the Caprivi Strip, a so called Infected zone, there are really wild, free buffalos in Namibia.
Nevertheless it is a hell of a buff and I would have shot it too.

No, he has a habit of this in past posts. Here was a post written on waterberg National park where it describes how the buffalo arrived at the park. Google says it was created as a National park in 1972. In recent years, they’ve sold many buffalo from the park because population of buffalo is high. Also, yes you will see some great sable and roan there but I don’t know if they’ve received quota for them. It’s a really great place to hunt eland or an old bull giraffe.Haha I think you should maybe cut him a little slack, I think coming from where he does he likes to think things are just right, even if he is wrong on this point, I believe new blood was brought in from East African Cape buffalo & that is why you see so many awesome Buffalo from this herd.
Cant remember full story but I think a government departed killed out most of one chiefs/tribes areas herd & he or they restocked it ?
When Namibia fenced off the country from Botswana below the Red Line it destroyed the buffalo herds from migrating back & forth in the seasons causing mass die off of Buffalo & Lions to a degree, I think in recent years with the fences not being maintained & game building up a lot of this has changed ?
