Map of Africa Wilderness

The Map-of-Africa is an extraordinary viewpoint at Wilderness Heights. Wilderness is situated approximately 15km from George, driving on the N2 highway towards Knysna.
Having traveled this road several times, I can vow it is very likely that you will see paragliders just as you have passed the Kaaimans River Bridge.

The bright and colourful paragliders, soaring against the open blues skies, make a beautiful picture.
The Wilderness turn-off to the left, takes you to the road that leads to Wilderness Heights. Just follow the road to the T-junction and turn left again.

An information board shows the direction to Map-of-Africa. The last stretch to the view point is gravel road, but is very well maintained. This is a popular view point and a long row of cars are parked to the side of the road over a weekend.
The views on both sides are awesome. To the right is the Map-of-Africa view point and to the left is a paragliding take-off spot.

Map-of-Africa is a spectacular scenery of mountains and forests . It is amazing how "nature has shaped" this map image of Africa. The outline is because of the way the Kaaimans River flows. What a beautiful sight!
