Caught on camera: Was that a black mamba?

Posted by & filed under Cycling, Travel videos.

While out on a ride at the Clearwater Trail on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast I almost rode into what I think was a massive black mamba. I cannot confirm 100% but if there are any snake experts out that that may be able to identify the snake from the video I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Winter in the bush in Botswana
