The exhibition site plays an important role in the survival and the conservation of genome of the indigenous buffalo in Hungary, and it is the popular display center of the species since the tameness of the livestock makes direct connection possible with the visitors. The visitors become acquainted with the gentle, coal-black animals on the path supplied with picnic area, information boards and lookout tower, and at the exhibition on buffalo history. An interactive exhibition displays the flora and the fauna of Kis-Balaton, part of the Balaton Uplands National Park. A car park, a snack-bar and a souvenir shop await the visitors all year round.
The Buffalo Festival is held in the Reserve every year in May. See programmes.
