Golfers panicked when they saw two super venomous black mamba snakes entwined on the course


Cara Treherne, had a bit of trouble finishing up her golf game when the 14th hole was a bit occupied.

Cara was on the golf course at Leopard Creek, just outside Kruger National Park’s Malelane Gate (If you are planning on visiting, get our special deals here).

She told “I drove up a small rise and saw movement out of the corner of my eye. At first glance, I thought it was a spitting cobra that had its hood up, but after a closer inspection, I then saw it was actually two mambas.

I quickly flagged the other 2 players in my four ball to slow down.”

Cara and the rest quickly realized that this was quite a rare sighting, so they paused the game and sat and watched the amazing sighting.

“We called the 4 ball behind us to also come and watch. I called my husband who was at the house to bring our son and to come and see too.” Cara continued: “It was amazing to watch and seemed to go on for ages.


We debated about carrying on playing the hole, but after a little while longer, we decided to drive past them at a wide berth and go to the next hole.”

Just after the group had gone past the snakes that were going at it on the golf course, the snakes started looking a bit tired, they separated and slowly made their way back to the bush on the left-hand side of the hole.

Cara finished off by saying: “We found concentrating on golf quite difficult over the next few holes. I feel this was a once-in-a-lifetime sighting. And so always make sure you have a camera on this golf course, there is always something exciting that can happen. I just wish I would have I had a better camera with me.”
