In this brand new 27-page media kit, I show you my work as an adventure journalist and speaker – everything that excites me. Reports, adventures, dares, challenges. Let yourself be inspired.
Desert Adventure Wadi Rum
A labyrinth of magnificent sandstone formations stretches as far as the eye can see, the sun makes the steep, red craggy rock faces shine, the desert wind whispers stories of times gone by – in Wadi Rum, Jordan is “great cinema”.
Expedition to the "green lungs" of Brazil
Deep in the Amazon is a place where, surrounded by the wilderness and all its inhabitants, you can experience the rainforest in an extraordinary way. Malte Clavin went on a voyage of discovery here.
Expedition to the Arctic Ocean
Aboard the research vessel ‘Resolute’, I lent a hand as a temporary scientist and helped collect data. The expedition took us through the Canadian Arctic to the breathtaking fjords of Greenland.
Ranger Training in South Africa
Exploring the wilderness on foot in the midst of lions, elephants and buffalo? You can learn to do that. In summer 2019, I will join a field guide course in South Africa.
With scientists on board
On board the ‘Resolute’, a comfortably equipped ship under the flag of the Royal Canadian Geographic Society, zoologists, ornithologists, oceanographers and glaciologists will conduct scientific surveys and counts over the next 10 days. And in the middle of it all, me, as a ‘temporary researcher’.
To the centre of the earth! German photographer Malte Clavin is one of the few who was able to take part in what is probably one of the most adventurous photo tours in the world, the Son Doong expedition. The five-day tour in Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park first leads through leech-infested jungle and the participants have to ford countless rivers with chest-high water. Roped down into the cave, the tour goes over hundred-metre-high sharp rocks, through underground lakes, caves with their own climate (and cloud formations!) and rare cave forests. Son Doong is the largest cave in the world and was only fully mapped in 2010.
Son Doong in Vietnam
To the center of the earth! The most spectacular trip I’ve ever done: the Son Doong cave expedition in Vietnam. First, it’s through leech-infested jungle. Then, abseiling down into the cave, over sharp rocks, through underground lakes, gigantic shafts. Absolutely breathtaking!
Volunteering in Sumatra's jungle
It’s off to a good start: sunburn, heat stroke, insect bites. Broken leg, dehydration, diarrhoea. Ida Vincent of Biosphere Expeditions initiates nearly a dozen dedicated conservationists from Germany, Austria, Italy, the US and Australia into the hazards of the Sumatran jungle.
