Western-style supermarkets in Africa (GPS coords)
I saw an advert in a South African travel magazine which lists the GPS coordinates for Shoprite supermarkets in Africa, and thought it would be a good source of information for people on overland trips in Africa.
Having just completed the west coast leg of my African circumnavigation, I can't describe the excitement I felt when I came across a Shoprite in Ghana. (Ok, I admit, that's a bit sad, but after months of having access to only local markets and the odd vastly overpriced French supermarket, it was a momentous occasion to splurge on home delights in Accra!)
Anyway, even if you don't get as excited as I did when I found the Shoprite, here is a scan of the GPS coordinates which you can print out and use as a reference if you so desire! (I've had to put it into a Word doc to bypass attachement size limitations)
Hope this helps someone out there eat good food!
