Quite overrated to me and sigh at the "guides" who want money for pointing out the rivers to you. Would recommend it for the drive which is nice!

This is a lovely spot to chill for a bit and take some amazing photo's. Views from the top are spectacular and if you walk just a little to the other side of the road you get stunning views down towards Wilderness beach.

I didn't know what to expect. But the view is beautiful. Definitely something to see to tick off the list of things to do in Wilderness. Heleen gave us the low down on everything, from the type of water in either side of the 'continent'...More

This is such a lovely spot, so interesting how the river forms a map of Africa viewed from the escarpment above. Quite a bumpy road to get there but definitely worth it.

This viewpoint has been created by people with a lot of creativity. Next time I will not visit it, it is not worth the time nor risking to damage your car.

Great lookout point over the famous Gardenroute forests and rivers. The Map of Africa looks just like the continent of Africa and is a short drive up a steep road from the village of Wilderness.
