Thought this was a bit of a stretch of the imagination and a bit silly. Didn't actually look like a map of Africa at all.

The views aren't actually that great and it isn't worth driving up to the view point if that is the sole purpose of your drive. If you are paragliding too then its worth having a look. Paragliders depart from this point.

The last place you would expect to see this Map of Africa. Beautiful drive up to the view point. You will not be disappointed. The view from up there is Beautiful. Paragliding gets done from that spot to over the ocean.

A quick drive from Wilderness centre is a great lookout. On one side a lush formation that looks like the map of Africa and the the other sweeping views of the Wilderness coastline. Worth the drive.

Natures wonder. A view point not to be missed. River flowing slowly through the hills. When standing atop the viewpoint and looking down you are definitely seeing "Map of Africa"
