Not 1, but 2 black mambas in Durban couple's bedroom!

In the thick of mamba mating season, a Durban man saw a black mamba snake slithering into his bedroom. Little did he know, it wasn't just one black mamba, but a happy couple. Two extremely venomous snakes on honeymoon in his Inanda house! Nick Evans has the details of what was a very exciting rescue...

Baby pythons unearthed at KZN construction site

This was a very unusual call-out for Nick, and one that got him really excited! A construction team in the Tugela Valley had inadvertently excavated a python nest, digging right through it. You can imagine the surprise they got when they uncovered all these little baby snakes!
They did what you might have expected - abandon the site. That is when Nick was called in to assist.

Travel just inland of Stanger - he was told. Ha! It was much, much further than that, and Nick had no idea what hard work lay in store.

Two mambas in less than two months for Reservoir Hills family

It can't be nice discovering a venomous black mamba snake in a room at 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 just send you over the edge.
This is what happened to a family in Durban’s Reservoir Hills area. One storeroom area on the property seemed to be a favourite hiding spot for black mambas. It was perfect for them as it was warm and cluttered - so there were lots of potential hiding places for a snake.
Join Nick Evans as he returns to the property to rescue the mamba – and restore peace of mind to the family.

Catching a very angry Black Mamba! (Durban's Cato Manor area)

Conservationist / snake rescuer Nick Evans 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! Find out how Nick's Snake Rescue went here.
