Water Buffalo

Those who know the RESERVE, also know about Kasimir, the mascot of our FAMILYHOTEL. Kasimir is a real water buffalo. As exotic as they may seem today, water buffalos were located in Europe, especially in the western Hungarian region a few hundred years ago- so right about here.

True wild animals can weigh up to a ton, their domesticated relatives, however weigh just half. As its name suggests, water buffalo are excellent swimmers and can spend hours standing in water. They are herd animals, so our four specimens are usually found together. If you like Kasimir, you will be thrilled by his colleagues, also!
