Namibia at 1:1,500,000 from Nelles Verlag, with its smaller map size offering a convenient format for use when travelling. The map includes several insets with street plans and enlargements of popular tourist areas.

The country is divided north/south, with a generous small overlap between the two sides. Coverage along the Caprivi Strip extends eastwards to include Livingstone and the Victoria Falls, plus the Moremi Wildlife Reserve in Botswana. The southern half also covers the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park with the Mabuasehube Reserve. Relief shading with spot heights and names of mountain ranges and peaks very effectively presents the topography.

Road network distinguishes between asphalt, gravel and dirt roads, and shows distances on most routes. Restricted access roads are clearly marked. Railway lines and local airports are included, and the map also shows internal administrative boundaries with names of the provinces.

National parks or protected areas and numerous other places of interest are very prominently highlighted. Latitude and longitude lines are drawn at intervals of 30’. The map has no index. Map legend includes English.

Numerous insets, highlighting places of interest and selected tourist accommodation, cover: central Windhoek, Walvis Bay, Swakopmund, Keetmanshoop, Lüderitz, Tsumeb, Okahandja, and Maun. Enlargements show in greater detail the Fish River Canyon, Sossusvlei, environs of Lüderitz, Waterberg, plus the Victoria Falls including the town on the Zimbabwe side of the border.
