Sibuya Game Reserve is delighted to welcome a new, very pale, member to the buffalo herd. The white buffalo calf was spotted on the 17th July 2015 on a game drive in the reserve, situated near Kenton-on-Sea.

Animals which lack pigment may be either albinos or leucistic animals. True albinos have no pigment and pink eyes, while leucistic animals have dark eyes and may have some pigment, which produces ‘ghost’ markings. Leucistic animals may darken with age.

As yet we’ve been unable to establish into which category this new addition belongs because the herd has disappeared into the bush.
