The Ultimate Road Atlas of Africa in A4 hardback format, with an extensive collection of street plans of capitals and major cities and maps of popular tourist regions. The road mapping of Africa is presented on 182 pages at two scales: southern and eastern Africa is at 1:1,500,000 and the rest - Saharan, western and central - at 1:3,000,000. Madagascar and neighbouring Indian Ocean islands are not included.

An impression of the general relief is given by altitude tinting, with some peak heights marked and additional graphics distinguishing marshes and wet and dry pans. Bold colours indicate national parks and protected areas. Road classification shows freeways, main roads, secondary roads, 4WD trails and selected tracks. Toll routes are shown, also high passes and intermediate road distances on main routes. Where a road meets the map edge, the next town on the route is stated. Main railways and international and provincial boundaries are marked and symbols denote a range of tourism features and landmarks eg. campsites, oases, border control points, airports, major ferries, viewpoints, waterfalls, battlefields, historical and heritage sites and other places of interest. Latitude and longitude values are stated for the map corners, the legend is in English only, and the atlas is indexed.

As indicated in the contents summary below, the town plans and maps of reserves and areas of interest grouped in regional chapters, each also including some brief introductory text on the region and resources for further tourist information. These maps are not indexed, but are clearly drawn and indicate useful features eg. one-way streets, railways, post offices, hospitals, airports, tourist information offices and places of interest. Considering that there is a limited range of African city plans on the market, and that they are not always included in country maps, or may in some cases be a little out-of-date, the content is particularly useful to, for example, frequent visitors to African cities.
