The present day development of the Lesotho 's First Snake Park at Qacha 's nek was first introduced at the village of Ha-Hlapalimane at Qacha 's nek, on the year 18thOctober 1998, by Nkhooa Molahlehi.
Snake Park is mainly located at Qacha 's nek districts in Lesotho. The park is not away from town but up to 30M from the trafic circle . It is opposite to Qacha 's nek Police station. The Park is strategically located approximatelly 1.8km from the the Boarder Gate of Qacha'sNek and Matatiele.
This site is unique in Lesotho, not only because it is the country's only snake park, but because you can also get your car washed while you visit the anacondas, endemic puff adders and spitting cobras. Oh, and the eccentric, local herpetologist who owns the place also keeps bees. And the first chief of Qacha's Nek used to live in a cave above where the snakes are kept.
