Map of Africa was completely unexpected!! Luckily the locals told us about it because it would be a shame to miss this gem!! View along the beaches from opposite side was also incredible.

It was fun to see but I think you need to be higher up or in the air, paragliding to see this viewpoint properly, from this hill you get great views over Wilderness beach and of paragliders taking off but you don't get the full effect of the map of Africa.

The Map of Africa... this is something to see as one does not understand the concept unless you see it.

Worth visiting to see all the beaches and dunes and surrounds of Wilderness. You can also watch hang-gliders etc taking off if you go on the right day....

It's nice to see a map of Africa in Africa - and not on paper. lovely views of the river too. Simple and nothing else to see - but mother nature at her best

My wife and I ran from the village of Wilderness to Map of Africa point. The walk/run was incredibly steep, so I wouldn't advise it unless you want to punish yourself or are very fit! If you aren't so fit, a car would be an easy alternative and you can be there in 10 minutes from the village centre. Great... More

walked up from the Wilderness Lakes, a far and hilly climb. Was interesting to see how the landscape was carved. Never liked the ever-present Car Guards :(
