Educational Talks about snakes and reptiles are presented by our Head Field Guide, Nicholas van Zyl. Nicholas is a qualified snake handler and has a great amount of knowledge about snakes and a passion for sharing interesting facts with guests.

Kagga Kamma does not have any captive snakes but should Nicholas find a snake on the Resort he will show it to interested guests before releasing it away from the Resort. A variety of snakes can also be seen on our guided tours. Get to know these fascinating creatures better in a completely safe environment.
