Safaris aside, we like to support all forms of wildlife conservation and that includes all reptiles. Luckily we have a good friend who runs a snake conservation program and we often recruit his help to go into schools to not only educate the children on the various species, but moreover encourage them to be respectful and understand more about the snakes that live in their area.
