Map of Africa was breathtaking, but just further down the road was also an amazing lookout of the Wilderness coast, which not many people know about. It was so worth the bumpy gravel, winding road!

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.
