I did not expect this magnificent view, wow! Absolutely breathtaking! It is definitely worth the drive up there. It is also the site from where the paragliders all take off which is also exciting to watch. It is not at all touristy as there are no facilities, toilets or things to buy. Do not forget your camera- wide angle lens recommended.

It was hard to believe we were in SA.. a truly breath-taking view! The entrance to the view was a bit shoddy but overall it gets a 100% satisfaction ..

This place is truly a marvel. Wonderful breathtaking views, and serene and tranquil. On a quiet day when the tons of para gliders are not there, take a good book and enjoy the peace, quiet and serenity. This is a paragliding hot spot though. If that is your thing, go there and watch the para gliders launch from the hill and glide across the sea. Take your camera and video camera and get great footage of them. Or if you yourself are a paraglide, this is the place to go. Many of the paragliding schools teach from there and there are plenty of tandem flights to be done.

Weirdly wonderful to see this beautiful Africa shaped ravine. Just for interest, two rivers meet in the middle one salt coming from the sea and one fresh water coming down from the mountain. There is two wonderful information ladies stationed to assist with any questions you might have. Definately worth the trip!

Although we couldn't exactly see the 'map'. The viewpoint gives an amazing view of two gorges either side of a forested area which could be seen as the southern tip of Africa! Just to the other side you can see the coastline, which is also pretty spectacular.
