Snake Handling Courses


(Snakes, lizards, but also spiders & scorpions)

It is very important that the trainees develop their knowledge about those small animals that they will encounter in the bush, as some of them are venomous. It is with the well-known Khamai reptile park that the trainees will receive the best training.

The trainees are treated to a high energy interactive session involving the use of live animals, museum items of interest and a power point presentation.  A course welcome pack and a "Reptile Awareness and Safety Hand notes" booklet are included for each attendee.  All in all the presentation is designed to be both useful and a lot of fun ...... an experience never to be forgotten.
