Marlon R.

Bobo Dioulasso, none, Burkina Faso

I was born in Surinam and raised in the Netherlands.

Presently I live both in the Netherlands and in Burkina Faso (West-Africa).

My knowledge of and interest in West-Africa comes from my specialisation in the African culture after I've studied music and art at the conservatory and of the fact that part of my ancestors were African.

Since 2002 I have had the pleasure to organise tours to West-Africa and thus learning people about a culture so far and yet so close from themselves. Traditional West-Africa amazes, inspires and relaxes in a magic way to those who know to open themselves (and are guided in the proper way).

If you search for a guide to West-Africa (Burkina Faso, Mali, Ghana, Guinee) then come with me and have an experience like you've never had before!

A Recent Review of this guide

Marlon did a splendid job of showing me around Ouaga and Bazoulé. He is friendly, approachable and easy to get along with and it's evident that the safety and comfort of his guests are a top priority for him during tours. He went above and beyond to ensure my stay was pleasant and even went the extra mile to coordinate a smooth arrival and departure transfer I couldn't recommend Marlon highly enough. He will make a fantastic guide for any prospective traveler visiting B Faso. Keep up the great work
