One of the best places to visit if you need variety that includes nature, fauna and beaches must be the wilderness area. The vantage point from where you can observe the map of Africa also offer a beautiful vista of the surrounding area.

Quite overrated to me and sigh at the "guides" who want money for pointing out the rivers to you. Would recommend it for the drive which is nice!

This is a lovely spot to chill for a bit and take some amazing photo's. Views from the top are spectacular and if you walk just a little to the other side of the road you get stunning views down towards Wilderness beach.

This is such a lovely spot, so interesting how the river forms a map of Africa viewed from the escarpment above. Quite a bumpy road to get there but definitely worth it.
