For truly detailed maps nothing compares to
Slingsby Maps of course - they're simply brilliant
and totally in a
league of their own. – J Viljoen, Wild Dog Adventure Riding
Cartographer Peter Slingsby believes that the more clear, accurate
information a map contains the more value it has.
Well known for many years for his maps of the South African National
Hiking Way, the Drakensberg, Table Mountain, etc. Peter decided in 2000 to
embark on a series of highly detailed and well researched maps of the
Western Cape. The complex beauty of the Cape and its mountains begs for
maps that compare favourably with the best in the world,’ he says. And that
is what hikers and tourists get when they purchase a Slingsby Map.
Peter and Maggie Slingsby live near Muizenberg, a seaside village on the
Cape Peninsula, in the Western Cape Province of South Africa, where they are
both actively involved with Slingsby Maps cc. They have co-authored some of
their books, notably “Walks with a Fat Dog”. Maggie is also the co-author of a successful graded reading scheme for Foundation Phase
learners, which is published in all eleven official South African languages,
while Peter has written several prize-winning youth novels.
