Bourke's Luck Potholes Tours and Activities

star-5
57 Reviews
Free admission

Located within Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve, Bourke’s Luck Potholes were formed by centuries of swirling whirlpools at the confluence of the Treur and Blyde Rivers, eroding away the sandstone bedrock. Named after Tom Bourke, an unsuccessful gold prospector working in the area, this natural attraction comprises a series of interconnected cylindrical pools divided by sandstone outcrops.

Viewing platforms and bridges cross above some of the best formations, and depending on the time of day, river levels and mineral content in the water, the view of the holes and multi-colored sandstone changes.

2-Day Panorama Route Africa's Grand Canyon to/from Kruger Safari.

2-Day Panorama Route Africa's Grand Canyon to/from Kruger Safari.

This tour is private just you and the guide in the vehicle it can be added to any safari and used as your transfer from Joburg or Pretoria to your safari in the Kruger National Park. The Panorama Route is an area of astounding scenic beauty around the edge of the highveld escarpment where the traveler descends from over 2000 meters to almost sea level through astounding mountain passes, past lakes, and rivers, and forested slopes with tumbling waterfalls. It is an attraction in its own right which would draw international visitors without Kruger Park being nearby. One should try to take the opportunity of visiting it ideally on a one-night stay over the trip on your way to/from your Kruger Park safari. It is more or less on the route and so it makes good sense to do this.
