Hopefully Drew can clarify, but it looks like an Afro-Asian Sand Snake (Psammophis schokari schokari) to me.
Spot on, Josh

Beautiful Afroasian sand snake, John. Whereabouts in the park did you find it may I ask?
First time I've tried this, so I hope it works. . . . .
Now, if you look you'll see a green pushpin named "Highland Access". Mushrif has got a lot of barrier fences - there is an opening in the fenceline at the pushpin which gets you into what I call the highlands. Lots of good territory to walk in there . . . .

Awesome, John. Many thanks
