MAP OF AFRICA

walked up from the Wilderness Lakes, a far and hilly climb. Was interesting to see how the landscape was carved. Never liked the ever-present Car Guards :(

It's nice to see a map of Africa in Africa - and not on paper. lovely views of the river too. Simple and nothing else to see - but mother nature at her best

My wife and I ran from the village of Wilderness to Map of Africa point. The walk/run was incredibly steep, so I wouldn't advise it unless you want to punish yourself or are very fit! If you aren't so fit, a car would be an easy alternative and you can be there in 10 minutes from the village centre. Great... More

Great views over river valley and Wilderness beaches. Scenic drive to get there. Propably one of best viewpoints along garden route. Also used for paragliders take off.

This geological marvel found in the amazing Wilderness area is easy to access and worth the short drive. The paragliding club opposite is also worth a visit for the view of the beach. The area is well maintained and clean

I wouldn't make a huge detour to see it but if you are in the area, go there and take a nice picture. the drive up there is a little funky but we didn't feel unsafe.

This Viewpoint has a view inland over the Kaaimans River, (which follows a path that loosely looks like a map of Southern Africa) with the rest of Africa disappearing into the Titsikamma mountains in the distance. It also has a beautiful view toward the sea, as well. Tip: To make the most of this you really need a nice clear... More
