Map of Africa - Wilderness Tandem Paragliding Flights
The Map of Africa in Wilderness in the heart of the Garden Route, another stunning paragliding site. The name for this place derives from the view over the back, showing a shape of the river similar to the coastal outline of the Southern African countries. The view towards the coastline is even more stunning. The Map of Africa take-off site allows us to fly mostly in easterly directions. Although one can fly regular here, really good flights are rather seldom, often only scratching is the way to fly. Unfortunately the site is very congested as well. We fly here whenever good conditions allow a stunning flight. If this is the case, then this site is well worth a visit.

There you turn left again and follow the hill up. Once you reached the top, look out for the Map of Africa sign and turn left again. Follow the gravel road until it ends right at the take-off grass field.
