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.

This is a very quick visit, the actual lady who talks you through it was good, it was a shame they have started building hotels along the riverbank, however, it was still a site to see as the rivers have cut out an exact shape...More

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!

Decidedly underwhelmed by the viewpoint overlooking the Map of Africa. Once the outline of Africa has been identified, end of story. Interesting, but ... The view from the adjacent para-gliding club take-off area is fabulous, however. Well worth the trip, with a super view over...More

This is really something to see . The river carved out a map of Africa and the outline is so good. You can sit there and take wonderful photos. It is a bit of a drive to get there but worth the trouble. You have...More

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
