Mcleod publishes Makgadikgadi Pans guide


Travelling with his 1989 Toyota Hilux jalopy, Grahame Mcleod fell in love with the Makgadikgadi Pans. He describes the pans as a "timeless place of peace, solitude and intense silence".

From his sojourns in the pans, Mcleod has now published a book titled ‘Makgadikgadi Pans – A traveller’s guide to the salt flats of Botswana’. Mcleod, 68, was born in Malaysia. He worked as an exploration geologist in Botswana before completing his MSc degree in Agricultural Economics at the University College of Wales.

He has taught agriculture at secondary schools and colleges of education in Botswana. Mcleod has also authored a number of textbooks and resources on geography, agriculture and environment.
