“It was definitely my father's influence from a young age. I was driving in the car with him. And this leopard walked down to the long tall grass. I'd never seen one before with my own eyes. And it was walking next to our vehicle, just in front of the bumper. And I remember being so lost in this moment, in complete awe of this animal. And it's like time stood still. It changed my life. And I was like, That's it. I've got to do something one day with these animals."

Do you know what your spirit animal is? I personally have had many dreams where a bear appears. It’s said that a bear in your dreams is a sign of independence and self-sufficiency. Some people have the leopard as a spirit animal. It’s said that the leopard is a symbol of stealth. The leopard is also believed to be a powerful healer and counselor.
Cameron Scott, my guest in the most recent episode of Tools For Nomads, had a close encounter with a leopard as a small child in South Africa. The experience left an indelible impression on his life and completely altered the direction of career as an African travel expert and safari guide, as well as world class wildlife photographer. He has his dad to thank for that. They used to visit wildlife parks every year when he was a child.
Cameron really does have the heart and soul of a leopard. When you hear this revealing conversation he’ll open your mind to the healing powers of an African wildlife adventure. His photography tips will prepare you for your next encounter with the great outdoors, be it at your backyard bird feeder or deep in the world of the African bush.
