    Default Paper Maps for East Africa?

    Hoping the old East Africa hands can point me in the right direction for the best paper maps for East Africa and where to source them?
    Specifically for Rwanda, Uganda and Kenya?

    Thank you

    Although all maps are to some degree out of date, the main things donít change.

    We find the best maps for East Africa are the Reise-Know How maps. I donít know where you would buy them in South Africa, but here is the link to the world famous map shop in London, Stanfords. https://www.stanfords.co.uk/reise-kn...e=20&orderby=0

    We also have old Nelles maps for Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania which I still use. For Rwanda, we used International Travel Maps www.itmb.com printed in Canada which we bought in Stanfords.

    I hope this helps.

    Yup, Reise and Nelle are the best. In Cape Town, the German book shop, Naumanns, used to sell them but now sadly closed. The National Geographic Africa Adventure Atlas although fairly dated, has excellent, generally accurate overview maps.

    We use ITMB maps. They're updated regularly (we send them GPX files after our trips so they are reasonably up to date however it's tough to keep up to date with the extensive road upgrades throughout the region). You can get pdf versions so they're handy on an iPad or other tablet, however if you want actual paper then their range of maps is one of the best, if not the best.
