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!

Wilderness to Victoria Bay on the Old Railway Line

The walk along the railway line from Wilderness to Victoria Bay is one of the easiest around.

From the N2 take the last/first exit in Wilderness (nearest to the Kaaimans river) and follow Sands Road to the carpark at the end, right next to the beach.

Make your way up the bank to the railwail line and follow it all the way to Victoria Bay. The Outeniqua Choo Tjoe used to travel this route before the line was badly damaged during the 2006 floods. The walk crosses the bridge over the Kaaimans river mouth and may be challenging for those with severe vertigo.

The walk is very scenic with plenty of photo opportunities - on occasion even whales and dolphins may be spotted.

The route meanders through a couple of tunnels and past an old restaurant tucked snugly into a cave. The beautifully kept premise is both eery and surreal. If Neptune or Ariel should show up, nobody would be too surprised. A special train cart used to deliver passengers to the restaurant and then return them to Wilderness station but now the tables only hint at the memories of merry.

The last tunnel brings a beautiful view of Victoria Bay spread at your feet and you will find a path down to the bay just past the forlorn sign announcing that you arrived at Victoria Bay. Make your way down and enjoy some refreshments, swim if the weather is nice and relax a little before you make your way back to Wilderness.

Remember to pack some water and plenty of sunscreen for this walk!
