Syncerus is a genus of African bovid that contains the living Cape buffalo (Syncerus caffer), including the distinct African forest buffalo.

At least one extinct species belongs to this genus; Syncerus acoelotus.[1][2] The extinct giant African buffalo (Syncerus antiquus) is also included in this genus by many authorities.[3]
