A month of monochrome memories: Mad Mamba

Face to face with Africa’s most dangerous snake; the black mamba, and an agitated one at that!

Pilanesberg 29122015 (3)

Our end-of-year 2015 holidays were absolutely packed to the brim. Apart from our ten-day visit to the Kruger National Park (read more about our time at Lower Sabie, Olifants and Shingwedzi in December), we also made day trips to five other reserves, and will be sharing photos from those (except Suikerbosrand, which we introduced in a post all of its own) daily through the month of February, in a series we call β€œa month of monochrome memories”.

      The black mamba is a huge snake, Zsuzsa – up to 4 meters in length, this one was about 2 meters long. They occur mostly in the northern provinces of South Africa. We’ll make a plan to show you the colour version πŸ˜‰

    Pragtige foto!

    Scary – hulle het so week of wat gelede in ons dorp se Wimpy ‘n swart mamba van amper TWEE meter gevang. IN die restaurant gedeelte. Hulle vermoed die slang het in ‘n bakkie van een van die plase dorp toe gekom.
