“Worth the detour”

An interesting view of two rivers meeting to create the outline of the southern part of Africa. Good for a few photos as well as the opportunity to step over the road to an open area where paragliders launch from to see the dramatic Wilderness beach below and the route that the N2 takes over the sand dunes. You can also see the rip tides along this treacherous coast. Altogether an enjoyable stop but it's informal and the info is courtesy of two friendly ladies who operate as volunteers.

Not sure why anyone would travel to this viewpoint as you can see views like this even from beach houses on the Garden route. Not that special.

The lady who established and maintained this viewpoint was helpful and informative. The views in both direction were good.

If you're in the Wilderness area and have some time to kill, be sure to take a quick drive out to the Map of Africa. With it's breathtaking views, one can easily get lost in its magnificence. I would have liked to see an information board though.
