A good Road Map of South Africa is essential for any safari or tour
through this country. It is also important that you buy a recent and up
to date map because we have had a lot of name changes taking place over
last few years. Towns, cities and street names have changed with the
result that even we locals get confused!
An up to date road map of South Africa makes it a lot easier to get
I personally like to use a map book rather than a traditional folded
map as it is easier for the navigator to use inside a car.
It makes navigating on the go a lot easier,
especially if it is used in conjunction with a GPS unit such as
Garmin. A traditional folded map on the other hand is handy
to give you the big picture when planning your road trip.
The map books usually have the street maps of the bigger city centres
included as well.
It is however better to get a street map book of the city as well. Once
again take into consideration that a lot of street names have changed
and may not match the names in your street map, especially if you have
an older version.
Map Studios is an excellent Map Supplier. Their
products are up to date and of good quality. I really like their street
maps of the bigger cities. If your are going on safari to off the
beaten track destinations I recommend that you make use of InfoMaps .
