While driving around Wilderness area we decided to visit this viewpoint. We were not disappointed. A unique scene to say the least. It is a "map" of Africa you are looking at. Be warned that it is a dirt road drive for about 2-3 km.

Probably not worth driving up to this point. Maybe if you actually look the other way towards the sea you’ll experience a better view. Just my opinion.

We found this place purely by chance whilst out on a scenic drive. It’s not far off the historic “seven passes” route from George to Knysna. The view is really spectacular and the great to have the sound of the ocean in the background

Breath taking views all around! Ocean with the long sandy beaches of Wilderness on the one side and Map of Africa on the other. Truly amazing.

The view is amazing. We went in the afternoon on a sunny day, which made taking pictures a little difficult, so plan accordingly.
