Worth detour for most scenic views on Garden route! Beautiful view on Wilderness and on Africa look like hills. You can easy spend there an hour just looking the views!

We visited Map of Africa on a misty and rainy morning. Although we could not see the full outline, it was a beautiful view anyway.

The views are spectacular in all directions. Some interesting facts are shared by volunteers on site. Please make a donation.

Just a novelty viewpoint really; presumably encouraged by the Wilderness tourist office. Enjoy the trip.

Beautiful views. A must see if visiting the Wilderness. It was a bit rainy when we visited, but that did not spoil our experience one bit. There is a small bit of dirt road you have to drive on to get to the area.

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.
