Know how to navigate, don’t worry about the destination, and stay alert. These are just a few of the strategies that contribute to both successful lion tracking and a life of fulfillment. When we join Boyd Varty and his two friends tracking lions, we are immersed in the South African bush, and, although we learn some of the skills required for actual tracking, the takeaways are the strategies that can be applied to our everyday lives.
AUTHOR: Boyd Varty is a certified Master Life Coach, author, and TED speaker who has spent the last ten years refining the art of using wilderness as a place for deep introspection and personal transformation. Having learned martial arts in Thailand, hiked through the jungles of the Amazon, and apprenticed to a renowned tracker from the Shangaan tribe, Boyd currently runs retreats that merge tracking, coaching, and storytelling into an experiential learning environment at Londolozi Game Reserve in South Africa, the sanctuary where he was born and raised.
