“Weird and Wonderful World”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

Weirdly wonderful to see this beautiful Africa shaped ravine. Just for interest, two rivers meet in the middle one salt coming from the sea and one fresh water coming down from the mountain. There is two wonderful information ladies stationed to assist with any questions you might have. Definately worth the trip!

“Spectacular views.”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

Although we couldn't exactly see the 'map'. The viewpoint gives an amazing view of two gorges either side of a forested area which could be seen as the southern tip of Africa! Just to the other side you can see the coastline, which is also pretty spectacular.
