It is so varied it is almost impossible to show you. We usually find them inside houses under cupboards the most. You could make almost any habitat for them.

I am sure there are habitat shots taken a long time ago on the forum. Search under both the new names and the old names.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

These snake are common in my area. Here is a habitat shot of a natural environment in Johannesburg. These hills are about two kilometres from my house.

These snakes are so widespread that even suburban area have populations. I have found dead specimens of this species in some of the older suburbs of Johannesburg (Parkview).

Nearly any South African habitat can accommodate this species. So I think it is safe to say that whatever natural southern african habitat you choose to copy, it will be the correct one.

Thank you very much, that helps a lot. Now I have a plan how the Vivarium for the Ladys will look like.
It will be a dry forest whth some sones (if I find the right ones).
Hope you understand my english.
