Ask Bushviper, he will know if any available in your area or at least where they will be able to get it in case of a envenomation.

Dasie, local SAVP antivenom should cover a Naja pallida bite.

But for the exotics - 'IF' someone has antivenom in the country, I doubt it will be made available to the public. Rather go on a handling course (if you haven't) and be sensible and ultra careful.

Dasie if you had done the snake bite courses you would have known this. Possibly the one you did was not really up to scratch though.
