Beautiful views. A must see if visiting the Wilderness. It was a bit rainy when we visited, but that did not spoil our experience one bit. There is a small bit of dirt road you have to drive on to get to the area.

Went to the viewpoint on an early morning - and it is a great view. Landscape is great and so is the nature around. Easy to outline Africa.

We stopped here on our way to view the paragliders who soar over Wilderness Beach. Nature sure has a sense of humour! This is certainly not to be missed, stunning!

Decidedly underwhelmed by the viewpoint overlooking the Map of Africa. Once the outline of Africa has been identified, end of story. Interesting, but ... The view from the adjacent para-gliding club take-off area is fabulous, however. Well worth the trip, with a super view over...More
