Changing A Leopard’s Spots
World-renowned wildlife trackers Alex van den Heever and Renias 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, Alex shares stories from his life with Renias, including the successes, failures, dramas, laughter, disappointments and highlights. As they experience numerous adventures, Alex and Renias 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.
The Tracker Manual
Alex and Renias co-authered the bestselling Tracker Manual published by Struik Nature. This practical guide to animal tracking is a one-of-its-kind manual, based on information developed with the help of southern Africa’s few remaining traditional trackers and their centuries-old wisdom in the field.
Alex and Renias’s latest book will be published in March 2020 with Pan MacMillan
…van den Heever’s leopard tale was about more than just trackers, neophyte guides and pleasing the tourists. It was, as he titled it, about “The Power of Relationships.” And, clearly, the two friends had told this story before – it was so inspirational, you could imagine them speaking before a suited group of Forbes 400 business people.
In an extremely entertaining presentation Alex tells how people from vastly different backgrounds, cultures and beliefs can forge powerful relationships. Crucially he clearly demonstrates how cohesion, supremacy, and pure bottom line profit flow from the quality of the relationships within any team, organisation, and country.
