You can bet they didn’t mention THIS in the brochure.
Photo safaris are safe, right?
Any time you are in the presence of wildlife, the idea of ‘safe’ is a sliding scale.
There’s a reason they call this beast ‘Black Death’. It’s because the Cape Buffalo have killed more big game hunters than any other animal in Africa.
So what do you do when you see one coming right at you?
If it gets to that point, your options are pretty limited.
You’re down to choices like: ‘hope’, ‘pray’ and ‘crap your pants’.
The folks who posted the video added this commentary:
Guess that’s one way to put a hole in the truck radiator. Never seen hyenas chase down and successfully kill a big bull buffalo but these guys looked like they were giving it a red hot crack.
Here’s what the horns did to a Landrover in another story:
And these vehicles are even rigged up for facing these dangers.
When it’s peeling the floor back like a can of Spam?

If a person looked to Scripture and paid particular attention to the passages within the Bible that address the topic of hunting, then they’d walk away thinking not only is hunting animals tolerated but it is endorsed by God. And that’s exactly what this little book is about: proving that God, from Genesis to Revelation, is extremely cool with hunters and hunting. I’ll go out on a biblical limb and claim right off the bat that you cannot show me, through the balance of the Bible, that the God of the Scripture is against the responsible killing and the grilling of the animals He created. ~Doug Giles
