What you need to know:

  • The snake section has been partitioned into smaller cubicles where some of the world’s most poisonous snakes are housed.
  • Haji says dealing with snakes requires special skills which he has mastered from the lessons he learnt from his master.
  • He is not just a snake charmer, but is also a healer of sorts, as neighbours often call upon him to treat snake bites.

Snakes hardly conjure up the image of making a living but for Haji Mwachambuli, 29, snake- charming has been his source of livelihood for the last 20 years.
