Some information on our snakes:
Puff Adder:
Puff Adders are responsible for the most snake bites in South Africa. They are considered one of the snakes with the fastest strikes in the world. Like most vipers, the puff adder gives birth to live young. Puff adders are ambush hunters and will lie for their prey in thick grass. The colouration of puff adders differs throughout South Africa. They are the most commonly found snakes in South Africa.

African Rock Python:
The African rock python is South Affric’s largest constrictor and can grow up to 5m in length. Prey is killed by constriction and their prey can exceed their own body mass. Rock Pythons are one of the few snake species that incubate their eggs by basking in the sun and then coiling around them to keep them warm. Constrictors do not have any fangs but, have a row of teeth to catch and hold their prey.

Green Mamba:
Green mambas can reach lengths of between 1.8 to 2.5 metres. Mambas have a signature coffin shaped head. Green mambas are arboreal and spend most their time in coastal forests. Green mambas have neurotoxic venom (like the Black Mamba) although a lot less toxic.

Boomslang:
Boomslangs are arboreal snakes and rarely come down from trees. They feed on lizards, birds and small animals. They can be found in different colours including bright green, brown, green and black variations. Boomslangs have round shaped heads and have big black eyes unlike any snake in the world. Bookslangs are back fanged snakes and have haemotoxic venom (destroys the coagulent properties of blood)

Mozambique Spitting Cobra:
Mozambique spitting cobras can grow up to 1.5 metres in length. Spitting cobras spray pressurised venom through their fangs towards the threat. They spit towards the highest part of the body, which is usually the face. Mozambique spitting cobras can spit without hooding and can spit the venom up to 3 metres. Underneath the hood, the Mozambique spitting cobra has its trademark salmon pink and black markings.

Zulu Dancing & Culture Experience:
At Phezulu village, the world famous Gasa clan has over the last 30 years, allowed visitors to Phezulu the opportunity to savour the taste and feel the rhythm of Africa. Visitors are taken into traditional beehive shaped thatched huts, where the various artefacts, beliefs and rituals are explained, giving foreigners an insight into the fascinating Zulu culture.

Curio Shop:

We have a very wide selection of:
• Stone Carvings

• African Beadwork
• Zulu Spears and Shields
• Large Format Prints and Paintings

Shield Making:
Traditional Zulu shields date back to King Shaka Zulu and have been used by Zulu tribesman in battle for hundreds of years. As the modern world has evolved so too has the Zulu tribesman and with this the Zulu shield is no longer used in battle and is now used for traditional Zulu ceremonies such as weddings and funerals.
Although the modern western world is taking over the African plains the proud Zulu traditions are still strongly practiced at traditional ceremonies. The Zulu people are a strong proud nation from KwaZulu Natal in South Africa and comprise of a population of around 8 million and are the largest ethnic group in Southern Africa.
Come along and watch these beautiful creations be carefully crafted, using ancient techniques handed down through generations.
All our shields sold have undergone a special process to make the products firm and prevent warping.
