Where to buy good maps in Johannesburg
« on: January 27, 2011, 09:16:38 pm »
We are going to go to Egypt trough the east coast of Africa starting in March 2011 and would like to buy good maps for the different countries that we will cross so anybody knows where in Johannesburg or around we could go to get those maps.
Thanks

they think of me and my wandering

got my indignation but I'm pure in all my thoughts

Check with the Government Printers, they used to sell good quality detailed maps.

Thank you I started looking for the Michelin maps and I think it is going to be perfect as for getting them in Johannesburg they must have that at track4Africa.
