Snake found along Die Hel trail

Observation - Snake found along Die Hel trail - Southern Africa. Description: I spend a lot of time on table mountain recreationally and this is the first snake I have seen, sadly recently deceased. Seems quite distinctive, but not easily identifiable a a mole snake from Google images, so I wondered what it was please.
