Fans of Simon Keys and Siouxsie Gillett from Snakes in the City as seen on Nat Geo WILD will get a chance to meet and greet the reptilian loving pair when they stop over at Carnival City as part of their Gauteng tour. They will be at Carnival City during the school holidays, on Sunday 23 June from 12h00 to 15h00 and on Monday 24 June from 15h00 to 18h00. There is no cost to meet them and some of their reptilian friends.
Keys who caught his first snake at the tender age of 10, in a wasteland near his home, described his first snake capture as the day he found his lifelong passion. Gillett who is all for defending the misunderstood was drawn to snakes as they have a bad reputation.
“I kept them as pets from a young age. My aim is to change people’s attitude towards them,” Gillett expressed. Although Gillett has been keeping and working with snakes for over 20 years, she only became a professional snake catcher when she started dating Simon in 2015.
