Overberg Whale Coast on a very attractive and detailed, double-sided map from Slingsby Maps, with many additional street plans and area maps. Relief is depicted by elevation tinting, spot heights, and contours at 100m intervals. Road information includes minor gravel roads, private road, mountain passes and intermediate driving distances on most roads. Routes which are particularly attractive - or conversely, worth avoiding - are indicated. Railways are marked, showing local stations. Symbols depict an enormous range of features: accommodation and camping sites, farm stalls and other local produce shop (cheese, dried or fresh fish, olives, etc.), wine cellars, breweries, various outdoor recreation sites (golf, paragliding, etc), landmarks, monuments, nature reserves, animal and bird watching sites, botanical sights, wheel-chair routes, etc. Latitude and longitude lines are drawn at 5’ intervals.

A particular feature of the map is its depiction of the coastal areas, where the overprint indicates not only the usual facilities founds in such places: best beaches, yachting, diving, board sailing, angling, but also the best places for spotting whales, plus sites of numerous shipwrecks with dates when sunk, going back to the 17th century.

Inset maps at 1:25,000 or larger scale are arranged around the main map and on the reverse. These display enlargements of 25 towns and localities, including Hermanus, Bredasdorp, Betty's Bay, Gansbaai, Kleinmond, Montagu, Swellendam, etc., with relief, accommodation, petrol stations, and other facilities marked. Contact details for further tourist information resources are provided. The map was researched and drawn by Peter Slingsby - renowned environmental educator and cartographer.
