Scale 1:1,550,000. Size 26"x38". National Geographic edition. National Geographic’s South Africa Adventure Map is designed to meet the unique needs of adventure travelers—detailed, durable, and accurate. It includes the locations of thousands of major cities and towns with an index for easily locating them, plus a clearly marked road network complete with distances and designations for major highways, limited access highways, and more. Both paved and unpaved roads, tracks, and trails are marked for those adventurers who wish to explore less traveled routes.
What sets National Geographic Adventure Maps apart from traditional road maps are the hundreds of points-of-interest that highlight the diverse, unique, and exotic destinations within South Africa including national parks and reserves, sanctuaries, World Heritage sites, archeological sites, museums, and important travel aids like airports, airfields, rail lines, ferry routes, and lighthouses.
The west side of the South Africa map includes the Northern Cape, Western Cape, Eastern Cape, and portions of the North West and Free State provinces. Diverse points of interest are featured including the Western Cape’s wine regions and spas. Along the coast between Cape Town, the legislative capital, and Port Elizabeth, areas for whale watching and shark-cage diving are noted. Johannesburg and neighboring city Pretoria (administrative capital) are included on the east side of the map along with Bloemfontein (judicial capital) and the coastal city of Durban. South Africa’s many national parks, reserves, and wildlife sanctuaries are clearly marked, as are other natural points of interest and scenic viewpoints. Dozens of beaches are noted from the Sunshine Coast to the North Coast for travelers wishing to soak up some sun.
Coverage highlights: Kruger Park, Table Mountain, The Garden Route, Real de Catorce, Soweto, Cradle of Humankind, Sterkfotein Caves, and Blyde River Canyon.
