Bruce, I just love stories about tracking animals. The most exciting part of a game drive is going out early in the morning, finding and following tracks. We have got the Tracker Manual that Alex and Renias wrote. It helped us tremendously when we were in the Kgalagadi. It is probably the best manual out there.

I’m in awe of the trackers’ skills in any game Reserve. I’m sure part of it is a learned skill, but deep in my soul, I believe some are born to this. I’ve witnessed rangers and trackers viewing the faintest of tracks and ultimately we were granted the prize of first class viewing. Bravo to all of you!!

It was very interesting and a great reminder to hear the history and names of a few of Lobdolozi’s trackers. To know that Elmon Mhlongo continues his superb tracking after all these years at Londolozi is truly remarkable. Also your presentation of step-by-step tracking, along with photo’s, made me feel the excitement and gratification of the final discovery. Tracking IS the basic heart and soul of a safari. Well done!

Nothing beats the excitement when the tracker alerts the guide to stop the vehicle and begin the search. I never fail to enjoy the tracker’s discussion of what he saw or heard.

Ummm… is there a broom cupboard somewhere at Londolozi? A Harry Potter sized broom cupboard. If so, I would like to book the Broom cupboard. Just give me a few months to get some money together. Let me know when the Broom cupboard is available. Never mind Londolozi being ON my bucket list – I’m quite happy to sleep with my head IN a bucket if I can get leopard photos half as good as these…
