Tracking has to be one of the hardest skills to develop! You are lucky to have a great teacher. Exciting story!

Having been fortunate enough to enjoy my time in Londolozi with Alistair and Euce, I have experienced 1st hand Euce’s amazing ability. The photos are amazing. I can just picture Alistair’s excitement at discovering this amazing find! Well done Alistair!

Hi, Mr. Smith. Meanwhile, I do my compliments for the passion she transmits through her words and her tales … It’s beautiful to read and reread … Through her stories she almost seems to live those moments alive. I would ask you something … But the litters of Tsalala are the children of the mapogo lions?

I’m not talking about these puppies for months.
But of the 3 adult males. Could I have your answers? Thank you..

What a great team you two make. Tracking is inbred in Euce and it is great that he can impart some of his knowledge onto you Alistair – learn all you can from this great tracker. Beautiful pics and a nice blog. Thank you both.

A brilliant story ending with a spectacular sighting!! I’ve always wanted to learn the art of tracking properly: I can identify a number of animals tracks but I cannot formulate a scenario from the signs or accurately follow spoor. Hoping to find the right teacher some day!
