Well-known and professionally respected cartographer, Peter Slingsby believes that the more clear, accurate information a map contains the more value it has. Although he focussed for many years on 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. Peter believes that the complex beauty of the Cape and its mountains begged for maps that compare favourably with the best in the world. And that is exactly 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.
We are proud retailers of these incredibly detailed maps of some of the best gravel and dirt road areas in our country. For more information visit the Slingsby Website.
