Impressive view on a good day but no facilities, nothing to interest the Tourist - no informative, signs.no tour guides etc.Rather a damp squib and not worth the effort of finding it on a gravel road.

We set out to find the Map and enjoyed our short visit. Certainly this is something quite different and only takes a few minutes to view it and take photos. We also watched the hang gliders who were performing opposite!

Went to the viewpoint on an early morning - and it is a great view. Landscape is great and so is the nature around. Easy to outline Africa.

We stopped here on our way to view the paragliders who soar over Wilderness Beach. Nature sure has a sense of humour! This is certainly not to be missed, stunning!

Always great to drive up to Map of Africa and watch the paragliders jumping off! My son of 9 loves watching them while we have sundowners. It's also nice to simply sit on the main Wilderness beach and watch them come down in their array...More
