Needs a bit of imagination but you can see it. The crocodile head is clearer and the para-glider take off point over the road provided lots of interesting photographs! The two ladies who man the area were very helpful and friendly.

This is a must see on your trip around the coast. A beautiful view and on our visit there were para-gliders about. We would love to go for a canoe trip in the river around the tip of this Africa next time. Great stop!

What an amazing site to visit. Did our first tandem paragliding at this side. Deon and Lucille and Jorge were amazing and made sure that we were all relaxed and enjoyed our jumps... even the 10 year old!

This is a prime view-point over Wilderness and ideal locale to view sunrises and sea life including dolphins, whales (in season), sharks and seals.
