The dark ghosts of the Moonriver Valley…

We breed excellent quality buffalo from the whole spectrum of buffalo genetics. We sourced and hand-picked our breeding stock from animals that developed in East African, Addo, Madikwe as well as Lowveld/Kruger environments, thereby ensuring the biggest genetic diversity possible. We do not compromise quality for anything else. We believe that our animals should be excellent representations of the species and selected only the exceptional over the whole spectrum, all contributing different qualities to the total. To be effective, we do not breed animals that only sporadically make a contribution (that would be senseless), but animals that consistently make a contribution to the species. When they have excellent horns to include the hunting market, it is a bonus. We aim to contribute to the overall quality and health of the species. We breed strong, hardy, very healthy and good temperament animals.
