Two mambas in less than two months for Reservoir Hills family

It can't be nice discovering a venomous black mamba in a room in your home, especially if you have a fear of snakes. That would probably give you nightmares! But when you have another visit a month-and-a-half later – that could send you over the edge...

This is what happened to a family in Durban’s Reservoir Hills area. A storeroom area on the property seems to be a favourite hiding spot for black mambas. It is perfect for them as it is warm and cluttered - so there are lots of potential hiding places.

Join Nick Evans as he returns to the property to rescue the second mamba – and restore peace of mind to the family.

Missed Episode 1?

We join Nick after he’s just received a call one night about a large snake seen slithering on a driveway in the Umkumbaan area near Durban's Cato Manor. Thinking it was a bit late for a black mamba, Nick assumed it was a cobra or a large house snake. But the resident was spot on. It was a mamba - and a grumpy one at that!
