MARCELL CLAASSEN

Originally from South Africa, Marcell has been travelling 18 years and always working in tourism. In his almost 20 years experience as guide, he has not only guided on mountain treks but also walking safaris in Africa, special interest guiding (bird-watching, butterflies, photography etc) and as divemaster underwater. His passion is sharing the natural beauty and fauna and flora of the places he works, bringing a more interpretive aspect to the treks he leads. In 2018 he will be off to Patagonia to research a route for a future trekking and kayaking expedition. Through Akilpo, you can still reserve treks with Marcell where he is in Patagonia too.
