2 Black Mambas for the price of 1 in Tongaat

The Black Mamba is arguably the most iconic snake found in the province, if not the continent! They are common in valley areas in the Greater Durban Area, and in southern and northern parts of KwaZulu-Natal.

Bites from the Black and Green Mamba are considered to be the most dangerous as their venom is able to kill people faster than most other snakes.

And so it's always a dangerous mission when Nick goes to rescue and retrieve a Black Mamba, and in this latest podcast, as you will hear, he gets a lot more than he bargained for in Tongaat.
