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.

There's a good view of Wilderness beach stretching into the distance, and on the other side you look into the depths of the Kaaiman River canyon. However, be aware that the field that would afford the best view of the beach appears to belong to the local paragliding club, so is not accessible to the public and their cars occupy... More

It's worth the drive up to see the Map of Africa, as you are on a high ridge above Wilderness, with the ocean on the south side and the mountain views on the north side. This is the point where the paragliding club sets off from.

We were here to paraglide and had some great days flying high over Map of Africa and then landing on the beach.

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.
