OMG!!!! This is gruesome!
Actually it is a Snouted Cobra.
The snouted cobra is a relatively large species. Adult specimens average between 1.2 and 1.8 metres (3.9 and 5.9 ft) in length, but they may reach lengths of 2.5 metres (8.2 ft). Colouration of dorsal scales may vary from yellowish to greyish-brown, dark brown or blue-black. Ventral scale colouration is yellow with darker mottles. A banded phase occurs throughout the species' range and is blue-black with 7-11 yellow to yellow-brown cross bars, the lighter bands being half the width of the darker bands.
and it can flatten it s head out (hooded) like the rest of the cobra specie .
Those are some graphic pics! An excellent reason to get Global Rescue!

Was this during your stay in Africa? very impressive size of snake
On my recent Buffalo Hunt in Limpopo, on the first day, around 4:30 as we where tracking the Buffalo. The apprentice PH yells snake. As I'm from Northern Alberta I haven't seen a snake in 15 years. I just stand there and say neat. My PH yells shoot it,shoot it, turns out to be a Snooted Cobra about 6 feet long. I guess I have a lot to learn about snakes.
