You get amazing views from the view point in Wilderness. It makes for great photo opportunities. The view point does get busy so its best to go early or a bit later in the afternoon.

You need to climb or drive to the top of the hill and then you will have a great view of dolphin view point and Map of Africa... After 10 minutes drive through residential area (very narrow roads and drive carefully), you will reach the top... where you can see the mountain looks exactly like Africa in the google earth...

Find yourself looking far out and down to the lush landscapes and waterways that outline "the map of Africa". I felt like I was standing at the bow of the Titanic - safe guarded by the sturdy fence and no seas below, but the slight breeze blowing through my hair as I marveled at natures beauty below and far out...

A must see when you are in the area. Lovely view from the top, when you walk further on, there are great views of the beach.

Didn't know anything about the Map of Africa Viewpoint other than a reference to it. But we saw a directional sign while out exploring and went in that direction. We were met firstly by a superb paragliding launch site, almost missing the viewpoint altogether. But when we got to the viewpoint, the view was spectacular. It was early dusk and... More

Map of Africa is a sculpted forest in the shape of Africa. A magnificent view but not able to photograph it in its entirety unless we had a drone. Was worth the dirt road drive to get there but the view across the road towards the ocean was more impressive.

It's easy to drive there, although its up a steep hill. The viewpoint indeed looks like Africa. Worth stopping off and looking at it for 15 minutes if you're passing through Wilderness or staying overnight. It doesn't take much longer than that though. there is also paragliding available from the viewpoint which looked fun and popular. We sat down on... More
