Map of Africa Viewpoint reviews
The short drive from Wilderness or from the Seven Passes road to the viewpoint is definitely worth it. You won’t spend a lot of time here, but the view to both sides is great and something to see at..... more »
Definitely worth a visit. The ladies who man the view point were full of knowledge and friendly and offered to take our family photos. I felt that it looked more like a crocodile head than a map of... more »
The views on the road to the view point are actually more spectacular than the office ones. Was fun watching the paragliders though. more »
Nice place if you are there, but wouldn't loose a minute going... the thing that is actually good is the paragliding place in front that has an awesome view of the beaches around
A must on your to do list whenever you are in the Western Cape. If you look closely the mountain appears like a crocodile head. breathtaking insidious plants with the river flowing in the shape of Africa through the forest
Great panoramic landscape, easy to get to, park, take a few awesome photos, picnick if you like, and quickly move on to more demanding activities. The south side is also a paragliding launch, if you are interested. Very high return on your time investment. Enjoy!
Lovely views, but be prepared to travel a few kilometres on a gravel road. The road was in good condition but be careful if it has been raining. On the other side of the road were also amazing views of Wilderness. Chat to the tourism lady, she has a lot of knowledge and history to share.
Gorgeous view from top. It's just a pit stop, there are no amenities but it's got a wonderful view from both sides. You can see the sea or the mountains. The river cuts through the landscape in the shape of Africa - it's uncanny!
