South Africa is located at the southern tip of Africa. It is by bordered Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Swaziland and Lesotho. It doesn’t have a shape which can be easily recognized on the world map, but it shouldn’t be that hard, either.
Map of South Africa with Cities
Here is a map of South Africa , with some cities marked.
Obviously this is a map for general reference. Should you plan to do some driving in South Africa , you will need a good driving map (which you should purchase when you get to South Africa or download it from specialized sites). It is advisable to buy a map of the region you plan to drive in rather than a map for the entire country.
When it comes to touring cities on foot , you can pick up a free map once you get to the hostel/hotel (or get one from the tourist information center). Make sure that the map also comprises the public transport. For example, this Cape Town PopOut Map will surely help. This Johannesburg Street Map is a good choice, as well.
