Zambia is a self-drive traveller’s dream. This vast country with huge rivers and lakes and numerous waterfalls is blessed with largely undeveloped rural areas and national parks that are not overrun with tourists. Tracks4Africa CEO, Johann Groenewald, has spent the last nine years exploring all corners of this evergreen country and fell in love with its unspoilt beauty.
The Tracks4Africa paper map of Zambia was bound to be published sooner or later. We updated our GPS maps for years on end and have sent many research parties to update the minor roads and tracks in the parks of Zambia. This 1:1 million scale map of Zambia is now the most up to date printed map for the self-drive traveller available.
You will find that all major and minor roads are included together with a vast network of minor gravel and off-road tracks in the rural areas. All national parks and game reserves are covered and more prominent parks such as the Kafue, Liuwa Plain and South Luangwa has detailed inserts. We have also shown the locations of major tourist attractions and landmarks.
Zambia’s country shape does not lend itself to be printed on one side of our standard paper size. We aim to bring a lot of detail into our maps and therefor we print country maps on a scale of 1:1 million which necessitates the country to be split in east and west parts and printed on both sides of the paper.
This allows enough additional space to include the very popular areas adjacent to Zambia such as Katima Mulilo in Nambia, Kasane and Chobe in Botswana, Victoria Falls and Mana Pools in Zimbabwe.
