Matthias Wichelhaus


Meet Matthias Wichelhaus


Matthias grew up in the woods and meadows near Cologne, Germany. At an early age, he felt the urge to travel and studied European Business in the UK and Germany during which he completed two internships in the United States and Australia. He soon specialized in public relations and worked several years for one of the world’s largest communications agencies. There had always been one passion that was even greater than language, however; the African bush and its magical wildlife. Matthias decided to leave his office job behind and became a qualified field guide in South Africa. He couldn’t let go of ‘the beauty of language’ entirely though and successfully combined his two passions and became a Content Writer in the safari industry. There are few things that he is not interested in; he loves classic literature, world cinema, interior design, civil aviation and international affairs. His favourite landscape besides the African bush is the desert – he enjoyed a few months of guiding in the Arabian desert, where he became an expert in falconry and camel trekking.
