A scientist by trade and an explorer by passion, Graham has been combining both for three decades as a guide, instructor and expedition leader. Graham specialises in expeditions in the bushveld of Southern Africa where he grew up, and in the jungles of Central America.

In 2004, Graham and his wife led a 30,000-mile overland adventure from London to Cape Town, which, arguably, was a key inspiration for the launch of the overland industry in the USA and formed the feature story in the premier edition of Overland Journal. He spent several years as Overland Journal’s gear editor and has written for Outdoor X4, Land Rover Owner International magazine and Exploring Overland’s online blog. He also contributed to two of Chis Scott’s books: Overlanders’ Handbook and Sahara Overland as well as Tom Sheppard’s seminal work Vehicle Dependent Expedition Guide.

Graham has guided expeditions in Africa, Australia, South America, the American West, Mexico and Central America. He is recognised as one of the premier Overland trainers in the world, founded Overland Training and is co-owner of 7P Overland. He was Director of Training for Overland Expo for its first decade, helping to develop it into the premier overland show in the world. Graham is a Member National (MN) of the Explorers Club, a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and a member of the Field Guides Association of Southern Africa. He holds an NPTC assessor’s certification for off-road driver and recovery training.

Graham has recently returned from leading the Mundo Perdido Expedition to visit Mayan archaeological sites in Belize and Guatemala, and measuring ground level CO2 to augment to the traditional satellite and aircraft CO2 data.
