Bourke's Luck Potholes Tours

Bourke's Luck Potholes
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.

Practical Info

Bourke’s Luck Potholes are located along the Panorama Route through the park, about 22 miles (35 kilometers) north of Graskop.
Address: Kruger National Park, Blyde River Canyon Reserve, South Africa

Panorama and Blyde River Canyon Guided Tour
Wander548729
, Aug 2019
It was a fantastic place to visit. Luckily there were no clouds or fog. On the down side, it was bit difficult to communicate with local tour provider. Very delayed response. Big gap between breakfast and lunch - 9 hours with only water to drink. Need to plan to have a break around mid day for lunch. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Need to make sure to provide complete details of your stay location otherwise it will cost additional amount for pick up and drop off.
