Tracker Academy director Alex van den Heever and tracker and guide Renias Mhlongo have spent more than two decades working together, tracking leopards, lions, rhinos in South Africa and jaguars in places such as South America.
The two have co-athored a book called Changing a Leopard's Spots: The Adventures of Two Wildlife Trackers.
They spoke to Azania Mosaka about their journey, their profession and what it requires.
You have to have decent eyesight, an able body, a good memory and an ability to interpret evidence. You need to know what to look for and in doing so, also in the diversity of landscape. A leopard's track looks different to a clear one in clear sand to what it does in mud or hard ground or grass.— Alex van den Heever, Director - Tracker Academy
It is technical, it requires a mental and physical ability and it is just a wonderful creative skill.— Alex van den Heever, Director - Tracker Academy
