Breathtaking views. Map of Africa live and on the other side you could see the views of Wilderness and the beach. Access to the place is through gravel road. There were 2 persons at the place to guide you. You can tip them afterwards.

Absolutely outstanding. If you take the longer scenic drive back or to the map, it is worthwhile. A hidden jewel. Ignore the litter - always some who destroy the beauty of nature. This is a quick visit to stare at nature's miracle, take a few...More
