H102 Ukhahlamba Drakensberg 2: Cathedral Peak

R 175.00 R 200.00

3rd edition August 2003. Includes Culfargie & Monk's Cowl. Not waterproof

DISCOUNTED DURING LOCKDOWN

This map can also be purchased in a six map SPECIAL that covers the whole of the Ukhahlamba Drakensberg Park from north to south. 

NOTE: The six map special is ONLY available for shipping WITHIN South Africa

All these maps are full colour on one side, with information in black and white on the reverse. The paper varies and seems to be lighter on later editions. The unfolded size also varies but is always larger than A1. All maps are at a scale of 1:50 000, with full contour detail at 20m intervals, and Lat/Long lines for GPS users. None of the maps have ISBN numbers. Firmly based upon Peter Slingsby’s maps of the 1980’s [a lot of info and most of Peter’s symbolisation copied directly without any acknowledgement at all!], these maps are the best Berg hiking maps currently in print.

Seems good but have not had the opprtunity to test it yet

The Map looks to be a good upgrade from the old map I have been using to date, but unfortunately haven't had the chance to use it due to COVID. Just one comment on the Mweni section - the road in the Mweni valley has been extended and a new bridge built. One could also consider indicating the Mweni visitor's section on the map which is at the intersection of 2 roads in the Mweni valley.

30 year comparison

My Cathedral Area map arrived promptly here in New Zealand - thanks very much.
It is a great resource and I'm really enjoying imagining myself in the berg again. Great to see the amazing detail shown on the map and additional information for GPS and MapGrid use.
I dug out my 30 year old berg map to compare and was suprised to see the old map was also a Peter Slingsby map, just issued by the then Department of Environment Affairs. They compare very well but I must admit the old one was a bit better in a few ways: It was printed on Waterproof paper and thus more durable, and the colours of the terrain rendering were not so dark so the contour lines were easier to see. Something to think about for the next edition maybe.

Philip -
These Drakensberg maps are not published by us, nor drawn by us, but we market them as the best Drakensberg Hiking maps currently available. They are in fact rather shameless copies of Peter Slingsby's originals, published without any acknowledgment - but leaving this crude plagiarism aside, they are not bad looking maps. It would be good to have them on waterproof paper, but you can always laminate your paper copy.
