Snake Powder

Has anyone ever heard of a powder you can buy to repel snakes? I want to bring some on my safari to Africa in December but before buying it I want to make sure that it actually keeps the snakes away. I dont want to buy anything that might attract them! Thanks

From what I have read on Herpetology websites the powder does not work.

Have also heard that spreading ashes around a campsite will deter snakes but found that doesn't work either.

Perhaps someone with more snake experience than I will chime in. I too would love to find a deterrent.
