¡IIIIIII¡ The 'Map of Africa' is an extraordinary viewpoint at Wilderness Heights. The drive up through small village of Wilderness is lovely.

A few minutes drive up the hill from Wilderness town , last stretch a gravel road which is very driveable by all types of vehicles . The route is quite well marked out. Its just incredible that the river & vegetation forms a map of Africa , also looks like the head of a crocodile with a bit of imagination . The views from the slope across the road is also incredible & it is advisable to walk down the slope for a bit where the coastline of the Wilderness is very clear as well as the lagoon & part of the Wilderness town . A short distance away one can enjoy a cup of coffee & take a leap of faith doing some paragliding. These view points are free & really worth a short visit if in Wilderness

Slightly misty weather but still able to see the natural beauty. Worth the drive up hill and on the little gravel road. Ticked it off the list of things to view.

The viewpoint is called Map of Africa, because you are looking at a meandering river that encloses a landscape coincidentally formed in the shape of the continent Africa. Indeed remarkable scenery.

On the other side of the road there is a slope used by paragliders for lift offs. From there you can see Wilderness along the coast with beaches. Another fantastic view.

Hiked up to the viewpoint on Remskoen street from Wilderness (distance 5 km, elevation difference 200m). It took me about 1 and a half hour

Nature is wonderful and the people who make it possible for others to enjoy. This was on my bucket list to see and I wasn't disappointed. The viewpoint enables you to see this natural wonder beautifully.

You won't believe what is to come driving from the main road the the view site. It is very safe and clean and the views are amazing. With a little bit of imagination you can definitely see Africa!

First time visit - what a view and never realised that you can actually see the map of africa and that a fresh water river meets up with the sea - there are two ladies who take it in turn on their own accord to spend the day their enlighting visitors about this wonderful view - the views of Wilderness Beach from here as well as view of Touws River and the Lakes are breathtaking. Only in South Africa!

The short drive from Wilderness or from the Seven Passes road to the viewpoint is definitely worth it. You won’t spend a lot of time here, but the view to both sides is great and something to see at least once. Parking is available right next to the viewpoint. Admire the view (both to the map and to the sea), take a photo or two, check out the paragliders and then continue your road-trip.
