Brabys has local operations throughout Southern Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands and publishes a large range of specialist business directories which is invaluable for business to business communication and promotional opportunities.

With expansion came diversification. Brabys now produces tourist guides, tourist maps, town and city brochures, and official publications. Calendars and diaries are also in the expanded portfolio of the company's activities.

The internet offering Brabys.Com is the most comprehensive online business directory for Southern Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands. It is the premier guide for information on businesses, community, government, recreation and entertainment and, with the enhanced search fields, is searchable by business type, business name, telephone and a helpful dialing/postal code search.

Brabys.Com online mapping is highly sophisticated with well developed new electronic offering, featuring a comprehensive coverage of South Africa including distance charts.

The acquisition of Ananzi, South Africa's top search engine and promoting Brabys.Com has resulted in increased usage of the directories and thus entrenched Brabys leading position in online directories.
