Awesome views of the river and if you walk just a bit further great view of the see. Very nice view point.

Thought this was a bit of a stretch of the imagination and a bit silly. Didn't actually look like a map of Africa at all.

The views aren't actually that great and it isn't worth driving up to the view point if that is the sole purpose of your drive. If you are paragliding too then its worth having a look. Paragliders depart from this point.

The last place you would expect to see this Map of Africa. Beautiful drive up to the view point. You will not be disappointed. The view from up there is Beautiful. Paragliding gets done from that spot to over the ocean.

A quick drive from Wilderness centre is a great lookout. On one side a lush formation that looks like the map of Africa and the the other sweeping views of the Wilderness coastline. Worth the drive.

We were on our way the Oudshoorn to visit the Caves when we decided to quickly stop there and have look. We ended up staying there for about 40 min enjoying the view. There were two ladies that act as local tour guides and we really enjoyed their explanations and commentary on what we saw. Whether you see the map... More

Natures wonder. A view point not to be missed. River flowing slowly through the hills. When standing atop the viewpoint and looking down you are definitely seeing "Map of Africa"

Great perspective on the Wilderness area. U.K. visitors will be pleasantly surprised by the lack of fees for parking etc.
