Probably not worth driving up to this point. Maybe if you actually look the other way towards the sea you’ll experience a better view. Just my opinion.

We found this place purely by chance whilst out on a scenic drive. It’s not far off the historic “seven passes” route from George to Knysna. The view is really spectacular and the great to have the sound of the ocean in the background

Breath taking views all around! Ocean with the long sandy beaches of Wilderness on the one side and Map of Africa on the other. Truly amazing.

The view is amazing. We went in the afternoon on a sunny day, which made taking pictures a little difficult, so plan accordingly.

One of the best places to visit if you need variety that includes nature, fauna and beaches must be the wilderness area. The vantage point from where you can observe the map of Africa also offer a beautiful vista of the surrounding area.

Amazing how something naturally made can truly look like Africa! It’s such a unique place and worth a stop for the stunning view.

Quite overrated to me and sigh at the "guides" who want money for pointing out the rivers to you. Would recommend it for the drive which is nice!
