More about the book!
In this light-hearted video, world-renowned wildlife trackers Alex van den Heever and Renias Mhlongo explain why they think you should buy their new book, Changing a Leopard’s Spots: The Adventures of Two Wildlife Trackers.
Out now from Pan Macmillan!
Van den Heever and Mhlongo have spent more than two decades working together, tracking leopards and lions at Londolozi, jaguars in South America and grizzly bears in the United States.
In Changing a Leopard’s Spots, Van den Heever shares stories from his life with Mhlongo, including the successes, failures, dramas, laughter, disappointments and highlights. As they experience numerous adventures, Van den Heever and Mhlongo learn to trust and rely on one another – both in order to stay alive, in a literal sense because of the sometimes dangerous environments in which they work, but also to develop a deep and meaningful relationship.
By challenging each other and learning from one another they break down social, cultural, racial and personal boundaries and obstacles that often divide South Africans; and in the process, the two men forge an unbreakable bond.
Van den Heever says:
Changing a Leopard’s Spots offers a great life lesson. While it is about tracking animals and our exciting, sometimes even dangerous, adventures around the world, it’s also about breaking down social, cultural, racial and personal boundaries.
