Maps, African Venue Publishers
Mapping 2D & 3D
3D Print Prototyping

Venue Africa are publishers of mapping and information covering destinations, features, water charts throughout Southern Africa.

 2D productions include the publication in the mass media of newspaper supplements and promotional material, rigorously surveyed and thoroughly researched. Conventional, 2D print runs also cover features, destinations, maps and tourist maps and water charts throughout Southern Africa. We maintain our core interest of supplement production. On the production side our strength is national and international print media coverage. New ventures include cartography, charting and customized mapping and our, 'Imperial Series' of maps of SA and Natal featuring battlefields and Boer War maps, produced by the British in the year 1900.

From a marketing perspective we have incorporated our extensive interest in Africa generally and SADC (the Southern African Development Community) in particular, into a holistic strategy which now focuses on local SA destinations, equipping them with marketing skills which guarantee maximum exposure to tourism and investment flow.


Our peripheral interest remains in the production of brochures, posters, calendars and other specialized promotional material.
