Snakes from a safe distance

Just a short report during this busy festive season. Despite quite a bit of rain over the Christmas period we did get to see plenty of Big Game and the elephant were right at the camp just after Christmas.

But rather uniquely, Christmas Day itself proved a good day for …snake sightings! On game drive we first encountered a 3m long black mamba and then a spitting cobra which was devouring a small chameleon.

Snake sightings are rare so to see two snakes on one game drive was quite something, and what better way to see them than from the back of the vehicle…
