Watch: Hunting Cape Buffalo in South Africa

Blaser’s stirring short film about pursuing one of the Big Five.

 

Here at SCD, we don’t normally share videos that run longer than three or four minutes, but this short film produced by Blaser is well worth its ten-minute duration. 

The piece follows a hunter and his guide as they cross rugged South African terrain in search of Cape buffalo. There’s neither narration nor commentary, as striking cinematography and orchestration instead carry the narrative. The effect is dramatic, fun, and captures the intensity of hunting such a large and dangerous animal.

Enjoy!
