Green Mamba in the Kruger Park...

Green Mamba or Spotted Bush Snake

Green Mamba or Spotted Bush Snake

We were sitting in the Nthandanyathi hide, located on the S28, watching hippos and elephants when we noticed a bright green snake in the tree in front of the hide.

I was convinced this was a green mamba.
We checked the snake guide books and asked Paul, the camp manager, but he was also not sure.
We then asked Dingaan the senior field guide and he took one look at the photo and said "its a spotted bush snake"! There goes our great scientific find!

Looks like it could be a boomslang - Green Mambas are not found in the Kruger Park.

"It's 768 pages of the most amazing information. It consists of, well, everything really. Photography info...area info...hidden roads..special places....what they have seen almost road by road. Where to stay just outside the information. It takes quite a lot to impress me but I really feel that this book, which was 7 years in the making, is exceptional."            - Janey Coetzee, founder of CAROK (Camps and Roads of Kruger)  South Africa
