Boyd Varty Tracker, Sto­ry­teller and Life Coach

Condé Nast House & Garden - - NATURAL HABITAT -

‘My gar­den is Lon­dolozi Pri­vate game re­serve. The name Lon­dolozi means “pro­tec­tor of all liv­ing things” – a place founded on the prin­ci­ple that peo­ple of all cul­tures live in har­mony with each other and the nat­u­ral world.’ It makes sense then that here, on any given day, a leop­ard may call from the riverbed in front of the house and in the winter months it is not un­com­mon for an ele­phant to find its way into the gar­den to pluck aloe plants from the ground and eat them like gi­ant car­rots. ‘some­thing hap­pens when you live close to na­ture,’ says Boyd. ‘In the pres­ence of vast land­scapes, huge trees, birds and wild beasts there is a feel­ing of true kin­ship. This gar­den is my sa­cred space.’
