Kamal has been working for Explore as a Tour Leader in Lebanon for a couple of years now. He grew up in the mountains of Lebanon, in an area called Baskinta. He is passionate about his country and its history and loves nothing more than walking, cycling or even skiing around the mountains of his home place. Kamal enjoys meeting new people from different backgrounds and likes to let them discover his country, although he does find it funny watching their expressions when they drive on the twisty roads of Mount Lebanon.
