At the end of April, Iconic Africa hosted its first ever, luxury tracker expedition at Londolozi for 12 of our ambassador clients. This was a weekend like no other… and our guests got to experience a world-class wildlife adventure through a complete immersion into the ancient art of tracking.
Led by legendary trackers Renias Mhlongo and Alex van den Heever and hosted at one of Africa’s ultimate safari destinations Londolozi Tree Camp. The weekend was a resounding success, and we can’t wait for the next one.
“An opportunity to immerse people in the ancient skills of wildlife tracking is a wonderful thing. There is no greater connection with nature than following in the trail of a wild animal. All humans are born to track,” says Alex van den Heever.
Alex and Renias had our guests entertained tracking and following rhino and equally late into the night around the fire regaling us all with stories of the bush and the Tracker Academy journey. Tracker Academy’s success is testament to their hard work. The yearlong, intensive tracker training programme is so highly regarded that every graduate is in high demand and results in them being placed at South Africa’s leading safari lodges.
“Iconic Africa is honoured to have been able to be a part of this event and to help Tracker Academy continue to make an incredible impact not only in the industry but in the local communities around wilderness areas where employment is often difficult. We are over the moon with the funds we’ve been able to raise and expect more exciting developments and sponsorships to follow!” says John Holley.
