‘I have the Overberg one … I smaak it stukkend’
‘I saw this map in Stanford’s, London and was amazed
at the level of detail. It’s an order of magnitude ahead
of any other South African map I’ve seen. And you can
have it airmailed to the UK, post free, so that I paid
only two-thirds of the price I’d have paid in London.
It's a thing of beauty, a labour of love. Well done,
Peter and your team.
‘Excitement, relief and gratitude greeted the arrival of
“the map the Overberg has been waiting for.” It is a
magnificent piece of work, an asset and tool for the
tourism industry in the Overberg to relish and use.
Every household in the region will no doubt also want
‘Goeie kaartmakers – soos goeie wynmakers, losskakels en
vleispasteitjies – is regtig skaars. Die kartograaf
Peter Slingsby is een van Wegbreek se witbroodjies. Man,
(die Overberg-kaart) is ’n leesboek in die kleine. Dit
hou jou ure lank besig.’
‘If only we could clone Peter Slingsby and plant one of
him in every province, we would know so much more about
our country ... his latest release is so chock-a-block
with information on the Overberg that you almost wish
the map were bigger. A particularly classy touch is
Slingsby’s smiley-face rating of byways on the main map,
with a smile for enjoyable routes ...’

says: All touring maps should be this good.
‘SOUTH COAST HOLIDAY SPECIAL [Garden Route, Overberg]
... Even in the age of GPS, real maps are indispensable.
I’m building a nice collection of Slingsby maps – this
is my fourth or fifth set, and the price of this special
can not be beat. 5 stars.’
‘Detailed, clear and interesting, one can pore over this
quality map for hours whilst planning the trip. Thanks
to The Maps team for the speedy despatch of another

‘I have the Overberg map published by you and find it
most interesting and useful especially as I have only
recently arrived in the Cape.’
‘Dear Peter, dear Team, first I want to thank you for
all the wonderful maps, we used them excessive in 2
journeys through the Western Cape in November 2007 and
in January 2008, we were driving around 10 000 km’s. I
hope one day we will meet you.
‘Thank you for making up such interesting maps and I
hope what you have put here will add to many others
enjoyment of the Whale Coast.’

‘I am at present using your Overberg Map. A friend and I
are hiking up the coast to Mozambique. Thanks for the
details you have included in your maps and for their
