    My question may sound silly but will I see a lot of snakes? I have a serious phobia of them. I have passed out at seeing just a garden snake! I would rather encountered a lion! Other than that my husband would love to come! I love photography and Africa is my bucket list!

    As others indicated, we did not see any snakes. Just let the guides know of your preferences. They are very accommodating.
