Many people get the shudders when they think of snakes, and other things that go slither in the night. But stop and think how amazing it is that your resident giant Gecko keeps your home free of mosquitoes and that Kudu Ranch is home to a rich diversity of reptiles such as Tortoise and Monitor Lizard.

It is fun to come across a Chameleon or a Terrapin in the dams and look out for Puff Adder or Black Mamba. It is a reminder to take care in the bush as we are in their territory and to step gently on the earth taking care to leave only your footprints behind.

African Rock Pythons can sometimes be spotted lazily winding their way through a dam, or watching a Boomslang raid Weaver nests brings home the reality that each species is dependent on another on this ecologically fascinating farm.
