The Map of Africa is a viewpoint located at the top of Wilderness Heights, which is the hill directly behind Wilderness village. ‘The Heights’ is characterised by smallholdings between 3 and 12 hectares in size and the area attracts a range of residents, from artistic locals to weekenders from Cape Town.
The Map of Africa earned its name because of the way the river cuts through the landscape and shapes the mountain into ‘a map of Africa’. It’s well worth a visit and is a great place to have a picnic. This is also the place where paragliders jump off when the wind’s blowing south east!
