    Goeie praktiese en bruikbare detail inligting – ek het begrip vir al die detail wat vertoon moet word maar ‘n A4 formaat met meer bladsyse sal verkieslik wees. Die huidige A3 formaat is prakties moeilik om in voertuig te gebruik. Ek sal ook voorstel dat die voor en agterblaaie kan inskuif in deursigtige “houers” om die atlas te koppel aan die seil omslag wat terselfdertyd ook bergspasie sal bied aan los notas en of brosjures wat ons almal van tyd tot tyd bymekaar maak.

    This is a great atlas and I would highly recommend it if you intend doing ‘big trips’. We’ve just returned from 3 weeks on the Skeleton coast and in Kaokoland, and the atlas, coupled with the T4A maps on my GPS, was invaluable for our planning.

    Interessing format as you have most needed roads at one page. Good overall information. Can reccomend it without any restrictions.

    Thank you for the wonderful road atlas. It covers Southern Africa in great detail and is a must for any overland trip. I would also like to compliment you on your efficient service. Ordered and delivered in two days. Excellent effort from Tracks4Africa.

    We have only just received the book – it looks great and makes for inspiring “reading”. The size is quite big, and I will have to see how that works practically when we are on the road.

    It is good to have this vital source of information in book form. It has already proved useful in combination with T4A Garmin maps and MPSA in planning our trips both through Lesotho and down to the Western Cape from Howick, KZN.

    However, there are features that we would have preferred to be done differently. We expected the A3 size was used so more information could be displayed on one page, but in fact it contains less information than the paper T4A Traveller’s map. The data could have been presented in A4 size making it more manageable in the car. The cartography is in fact poor and unattractive. We wanted to know if the A24 in Lesotho to Telle Bridge is tarred. We are still uncertain, and it is hard to find out with the book sitting on the lap writing this review. The information pages could have been in a separate (A4) booklet, and in Times New Roman font without loss of legibility. Some of the information is also wrong as you need three months not six passport validity.

    Yet without it one is stuck, so be thankful for what you have got. We will see as we use it in the field.

    Excellent product with detailed maps. A must have for any overland trip. Very good aid to give you perspective of directions, etc when working on a GPS as zooming out on the GPS for this, looses too much detail. Will definitely not venture onto a next trip without my maps.
    Good quality maps with waterproof quality.

    Looks like a good book for planning and back up when electronics fail. I don’t know if I missed it but GPS coordinates of popular places or POI on the map would be great.

      Hi Danie

      Glad you like the Atlas. We don’t print GPS coordinates because there is too much room for error – if just one or two digits are copied and typed into a GPS unit incorrectly – it could take you to the completely wrong place – and then T4A gets blamed for it 🙂
      We do print town poi names and attractions etc – but because of the scale of the atlas it is not possibly to include poi names everywhere – it will be completed cluttered.
      Hope this answers you.
      regards
      Janine

    Very happy with the atlas. Very detailed and absolutely wonderful for planning any trip. Good quality. Don’t know how I managed without it. Thank you!

    I think it is a GREAT book – it just needs a decent FULL SIZE map over two pages in the beginning of the book with most of the major roads on it – THAT would make it FANTASTIC!!!!

    Excellent product – Nothing like a proper paper map as back up to all our electronic-dependent gadgetry.
