MAP: Africa, Cape-to-Cairo
« on: November 02, 2016, 01:13:55 pm »
after not being asked for such a map for maybe 24+ months, we got two requests in just 10 days...!
So now available - the 1st Edition of the AFRICA: Cape To Cairo Map; includes motorways, toll roads, major, minor and DIRT roads, main map scale: 1 : 4000 000. R125 incl. I reckon 10% of it's value is as an actual map, the other 90% is just to stare at it, dreaming/willing a Cape-to-Cairo trip to become reality...!

Cheers,

How big does it open up as one big map?

roughly 1 meter 40 long, and 1 meter wide.
it is BOTH sided, meaning that some of the detail is on the flip side.

See picture with tyre, for illustration of it's size.

You may want to check out the Tracks4Africa physical maps.  They are really handy, especially when used in conjunction with a GPS: https://tracks4africa.co.za/maps/about/paper/

For the most part, Google Maps will serve you just fine within the Republic itself.
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.
