A trip up to see this view is well worth it. You do not need much imagination to see the Map of Africa. Quite amazing to see what nature can do.

This is a stunning viewpoint but quite a drive. The area around he viewpoint is not developed. It looked a bit like a crocodiles head but could have passed for a map of Africa too. Nice to see if u have the time.

WOW !!!! What a view? Can you believe it? The map of Africa right here in the Garden Route :-) So next time you are in the Garden Route add this one of your "things to do / see" list.

If it wasnt for a show we watched the previous night before travelling through Wilderness we would have never known about this! It was a lovely drive up to the view point and the scene up there is spectacular! Such a special place!

One does not need long here, but it is well worth the stop to see the beautiful view. We always take guest there, but only stand at the lookout for a couple of minutes. We then sit on the lawns across the road and look at the paragliders taking off. Fun!

If you need to check out the beauty of this region,this is one of the place's you need to visit.You need to chose a nice clear day also.If you are into paragliding which is on the opporsite side of this viewing point,then you have come to the right place.

Indeed, only the tourist viewpoint of 'Map of Africa' doesn't look so interesting in order to valorize so much the tour. On the contrary, the areas around it, special the hills, offer us an awesome view and one of it is used as a parasailing launch site.
