Didn't know anything about the Map of Africa Viewpoint other than a reference to it. But we saw a directional sign while out exploring and went in that direction. We were met firstly by a superb paragliding launch site, almost missing the viewpoint altogether. But when we got to the viewpoint, the view was spectacular. It was early dusk and... More

Map of Africa is a sculpted forest in the shape of Africa. A magnificent view but not able to photograph it in its entirety unless we had a drone. Was worth the dirt road drive to get there but the view across the road towards the ocean was more impressive.

This is a must see on your trip around the coast. A beautiful view and on our visit there were para-gliders about. We would love to go for a canoe trip in the river around the tip of this Africa next time. Great stop!

What an amazing site to visit. Did our first tandem paragliding at this side. Deon and Lucille and Jorge were amazing and made sure that we were all relaxed and enjoyed our jumps... even the 10 year old!
