The river coming down too the sea has carved the landscape into the form of the map of Africa. Very nice, and only a short drive from Wilderness CBD

Well worth a visit.This remarkable location highlights the natural beauty of this area with views that would do credit to a soaring eagle.A 'must go to' spot when in Wilderness.

The hill you look down on does look very much like the map of Africa but there is a woman who seems to always sit there who bombards you with information you don't need and disturbs the tranquility of the place and seems to want money.

A must visit if you are in the area. A beautiful scenery and gorgeous sunset. Ideal spot to have your champagne on ice and watch the sunsets.

We visited this site during December 2016. Was disappointed when we saw what we drove to see all the way from Mosselbay. Yes a nice view, but there are many other in the surrounding area. This was probably hyped up by some movie.

We were a bit disappointed with the view as have seen much better on our travels, it's really just the shape similar to the country and not much else. It's a bit of strange short drive to get there and then not much of a viewing point which was also quite untidy.

We had just completed a canyoning trip with Canyon Adventures all the way down the right side of the 'map'. It was a amazing to see our trip from afar and what we had just conquered.

Need fantasy to actually see the shape of the African continent. For nice landscape the Tsitsikamma is much better!

Awesome view point allows visitors to appreciate the beauty of the Garden Route in all its splendour. Well worth a visit.

This is a unique location high above Wilderness with panoramic views of this unusual geographical feature. Our visit was enhanced by one of the local volunteers Heleen who provided lots of useful information on the location and wildlife.
