Meet Nokulunga Buthelezi, The Snake Woman of Africa (Video)

All of us are born with exceptional talents making us completely different and unique from each other- intellectual skill, visual capabilities, music inclination, and body recognition.

Those people who acknowledge their body strength mostly came up with the idea to become dancers, but there are some who chose to use their body in a very different way. One woman on the list is Nokulunga Buthelezi from Johannesburg, South Africa.


Nokulunga Buthelezi, who also known as ‘Lunga’ who has a very unique talent of being a contortionist. She’s not trained to become one but it’s purely natural and believed that she acquired this unusual talent from the “snake genes” passed on to her by her great-grandmother.


She loves to bend and twist her body without any sense of fear from her face. Even when she’s still young, she contorts herself in her cot. She’s now dubbed as the ‘Snake Woman’ because of her flexible body like what a snake has.

“I never met my great-grandmother, but apparently she was as flexible as I am,” says Lunga. “I was glad when I learnt that, because I used to think: ‘Why am I like this? Why am I the only one who can do it?”
