We have had our Buffalo for three years now.
It has covered hundred and hundreds of Km’s across all surfaces.
It gets thrown around from boot to boot and it has still never missed a beat. Durability has been excellent. Comfort for both baby and mum/dad has been excellent.
Aftermarket accessories and replacement parts (we ordered new rear wheels as we simple wore the old ones out) has also been appreciated.
Easy to set up and pack down.
It may be slightly heavier then some other Prams, but then the spin off is the excellent build quality and durability.
After sales service has also been excellent (ordered new wheels easily over the phone and they arrived within three days)
The best pram I’ve ever come across
I’ve had my buffalo for 18 months now. I purchased it and not long after they discontinued it and replaced it with the fox.
I can not fault this pram. It is worth the money ( you can get a good price second hand now)
It has gone everywhere we’ve taken it - soft sand, wet sand, dirt, gravel, rocks and larger boulders, grass, mud and footpaths/bitumen. It hasn’t put a foot wrong. At all. My 18 month old still sleeps in it and I love how agile it is!
If you can get a second hand one, it’s worth it 100%
Don’t let buying secondhand concern you.
We purchased the bugaboo buffalo based on its looks and all terrain ability. Shame these were discontinued but highly recommend purchasing second hand. We purchased our bugaboo buffalo secondhand not long after they were discontinued and have nothing but praise. This pram is not only stylish but has lots of basket space and I use this pram through long, thick grass and a bumpy paddock with absolute ease every day. Turns on a dime which is great when in crowded public places or elevators. The durability and quality of this pram is well worth the price you pay for the pram whether it be new or secondhand.
Purchased in August 2018 for A$1,000.00.
Quality, style and comfort!
I absolutely love our Bugaboo Buffalo pram! It is everything you need plus more. We used it as our babies bassinet until she was 4 months old she loved it so much. And very convenient, I would just wheel her around the house with me! The big wheels make for an easy stroll if you’re not on the footpath. We live in a regional town and often went off road, the Buffalo handled rocky terrain with ease.
Bugaboo is a renowned brand and I have to say has lived up to all my expectations. The quality is second to none. I also love the sleek style, and p...

Love this pram!
Although this pram is a bit on the heavy side, my daughter is so comfy and the pram just glides. I live in an area with lots of hills and rocky paths down by the river, so was looking for a pram that moves with ease. This pram absolutely does that.
Love the big basket and extendable good.
Gorgeous design too.
Breaks are very easy to use. I have the 2017 model and the breaks are below.
I wish they made this in a double as it’s been so good for one child.
Best Decision Ever
I had looked at various prams and it came down to the I-candy peach or the Bugaboo buffalo. As my husband and I are tall I didn’t want to buy a pram that my son would’ve outgrown by the time he was 1 and so the buffalo it was.
Hands down is the best decision I made and even over rough terrain, the pram moves with ease and is very easy to manoeuvre. It’s a very sturdy pram and because of this it can be a bit heavy but you get used to it after a while. It takes up boot space so just make sure that it’ll be able to fit in your car.
Loved this pram and wouldn’t change my mind if I had the opportunity.
Perfect well priced pram!
I had a bugaboo bee3 which was amazing for quick shopping trips on even surfaces.
I upgraded to a buffalo and absolutely in love! 2years later i have not looked at another pram since! The accessories, the size, the ruggedness of being able to use it wherever you need is wonderful!
Only downfall is my seat on layback seems to be slightly tipped further back than most. But still a well rounded pram!

Heavy but sturdy
Great, sturdy pram which is perfect for rough terrains. It has a tight turning circle which makes it easy to use in busy shopping centres. It is quite heavy though and bulky to fold up so isn't ideal for small cars. My daughter appears comfortable in it. It allows for rear facing so I can keep an eye on her especially if she's having a rough day and wants to see Mummy.

Great pram, it should have a second seat option.
Wonderful pram that I was very fortunately gifted, I’ve always felt very privileged to have such a beautiful pram.
It’s been built well. We go on a lot of outings with our friends and go on a lot of walks. I always found I was the friend easily moving onto the grass when the paths weren’t big enough for two prams.
The basket is fantastic, somehow it use to fit in my tiny Mazda 2! Have since gotten a SUV and I have heaps of room for groceries.
The major downside is there is not a second seat option. The pram is built so well and strong that...I cannot understand why the brand hasn’t made that option apart from the obvious (they want you to buy the donkey). I’ve spent countless hours looking for a second seat option so that my 23 month old can sit down comfortably when she needs to (the buggy boards would not be comfy for longer periods). I will literally have to stick her in the basket down below when we get desperate which is such a shame when this beast could totally handle a second seat.
Not bad. Few things that could improve it..
I got this as it looked like a good pram in terms of large basket and big wheels for a rougher surface.
I did end up selling it as I got sick it not being a single fold, and my son also wasn’t comfortable in the seat (my main reason for selling).
- HUGE accessible basket. I loved this feature the most.
- big extendable hood.
- smooth to push.
- handle rough surfaces and bumpy paths easily.
Con’s: ...- I got sick of removing the seat, and having to fold the frame seperately to put in the boot (there is a way to fold with the seat on, but it makes it super bulky). - the frame doesn’t click and hold together when folded. This meant when pulling out of the boot, it would start to unfold prematurely and I’d often gets bruises on my legs from it. - pram is on the heavier side, although probably not significantly when compared to most large prams. - my son hated the seat once he was sitting fully upright. The base of the seat in the most upright position is very flat (no slight tilting back like a lot of other prams have), and he always seemed like his was slipping forward slightly, and the buckles were essentially holding him in. When I got a new pram after this, he was so much happier to sit in it.
great pram - its paid fir itself
best pram that you can get today - hands down
we have had this pram for 3 and a half years - by no means are we gentle with the pram. it is very easy to maneuver, fold and pack up. my kids have travelled in this in comfort as the big tyres smooth out the bumps in the foot paths and in rough terrains. we take the pram off road - to farms, national parks, beaches ....
The most important thing is that the pram is very stable and sturdy pram

Ultimate all terain stroller
It’s not cheap but really worth the price tag. Robust and rather heavy but still manageable to steer with ease. Never have problems with any surface, decent sized basket and a great nappy bag hanging hook feature. I like the fact that toddler seat placed quite high so I don’t have to bend over to put or take my child from stroller. It’s easy to fold and unfold, and due to the weight its also stable to drive when the weather a bit windy. Overall I’m very happy with this stroller. This stroller is perfect for running errands and can go with my little family everywhere, literally!

The best pram I have ever used
I didn’t realise there was a perfect pram u til I got a buffalo. I can go walking and not having to worry about falling down a ditch and my child falling out of the pram, the wheel are sturdy as well as the whole pram, I love how big the seat is and it’s positioned at a great height. Easy to use and steer, great sized basket for your nappy bag and shopping. I would recommend this pram to everyone if I could.
Best pram, easy, convenient, stylish
I love this pram it’s so easy to use, my daughter is 7 months old and I’m shattered to hear this pram is now discontinued since the bugaboo fox came out. The buffalo is a perfect size, has a huge basket for shopping and room for a nappy bag on the handle. Good quality and I tell everyone expecting a baby to get one! The big hood is also a really good feature and hard to find on a lot of other prams I looked at. Bring back the bugaboo!
In love with this pram!
I have had my bugaboo buffalo for over 2 years and my 2.5yr old son is still using it. It is very easy to maneuver while out and about and the big front wheels make it that extra easy to use when you are going up and down side walks. I often see other prams having bumpy rides when they go on grass or try to go through a bumpy road. I don't have this issue with the buffalo as it is so smooth and sturdy off-road and you hardly notice bumps.
The pram is very good quality and still looks great after 2 years, especially since you can personalise the pram by changing the hood, adding liners or putting your personal touch.
Would highly recommend the pram for someone looking for a good quality pram to use in or out of the city.
Couldn't live without it
Only been using the pram for a few months now but find it to be sturdy and strong. It's quite heavy because of this, but you get used to it. We bought it because it was recommended and could be adjusted to grow with our baby so we wouldn't have to purchase another pram when he's bigger.
Strong pram with good handling
I bought this pram after very careful consideration for my little one. It has very good handling and quality fabrics. To be honest, it isn’t easy to fold, unfold and carry due to the size and how it designed but this is how the pram made stronger than other compact lighters prams.

We purchased a Bugaboo Buffalo for our second baby and love everything about it! The two main reasons for the purchase was the option of using the bassinet and seat, something that will grow with our son, also the all terrain wheels.
It is super easy to maneuver, my 7 year old can push his brother quite comfortably. The extendable handle also means my tall partner can push as well :)
The wheels are strong and sturdy. We have taken it on the beach and also on dirt trails with no worries. Just lock the front wheels and away you go.
Questions & Answers
I recently bought a universal footmuff after being assured by someone at bugaboo that it will fit my Buffalo. It’s arrived and we can’t get it on. The straps don’t come apart for us to loop through the holes and the holes don’t have a Velcro opening to loop allow the straps through. Am I missing something here?
Hi Marissa F.,
The Bugaboo Footmuff will have an opening down the back of the accessory to allow the Buffalo harness to thread through so you can secure your child. If it is not fitting can you please reach out to our customer care team and include some images of your prams harness? firstname.lastname@example.org
