I was not very impressed with the view as it is just another viewpoint. The river around the hill does look similar to a map of Africa, but that is all. A long drive there and a bit disappointing.

While driving around Wilderness area we decided to visit this viewpoint. We were not disappointed. A unique scene to say the least. It is a "map" of Africa you are looking at. Be warned that it is a dirt road drive for about 2-3 km.
