Cabex Maps



CABEX MAPS is the company that makes the new, definitive and superbly detailed Tracks4Africa Tourist maps of countries in Africa.

CABEX MAPS and Tracks4Africa (also known as "T4A") co-operate closely in building new paper maps for Africa.

T4A is the organization that collects and processes the GPSr data, recorded and sent in by many hundreds – if not thousands - of travelers throughout Africa. These travel data form the heart of the well-known Tracks4Africa GPS maps, which, once uploaded into a GPSr unit, provide turn-by-turn driving instructions, not only for the entire route from Cairo to Cape Town but also on most roads and tracks in practically every country on the African Continent.

CABEX MAPS uses these electronic data to create large scale paper maps, which provide the user with the perfect supplement to the GPS data, or as a stand-alone product, ideal and indeed indispensable for route planning into the wild regions of Africa.

The maps we make only reflect those roads and tracks, which have actually been driven AND recorded by the numerous data contributors who, together, form the knowledge- and experience base of T4A. The process of building the maps - both the digital and the paper maps  - is a dynamic one, since it is virtually impossible to drive ALL the roads in a given country. 

So, even though we cover a very high percentage of commonly driven roads, as well as many uncommon roads and tracks, there will always be bits and pieces that do not (yet) appear on our maps. The challenge to the tourist, especially those with a recording GPSr (Global Positioning System receiver) on board, is to drive around inquisitively and send all the recordings to T4A for insertion in the database. Only in that way will we be able to maintain the top quality of our maps.

An added bonus of the CABEX paper maps – since they use the same T4A data, recorded with satellite positioning precision – is that we can not only provide accurate distance information along the roads, but also TRAVEL TIME information! This is a WORLD FIRST for country maps, for all we know.

To those who have traveled in Africa it is no secret that one hardly travels by kilometer, but mostly by time. Travel time indications along EVERY stretch of road on our paper maps are a superb and indispensable help in trip planning, whether it is at home before starting out, or just for the day while in the field and consulting your map on your car’s bonnet.

So, go out and get yourself the CABEX Map for the country you want to visit and start planning your route!
