Bourke’s Luck Potholes

Situated in the Mpumalanga area Bourke’s Luck Potholes are a must see.

Sculpted from centuries of flowing water the rocks here offer a truly fascinating design, where mother nature truly does inspire.

An Experience

After entering this natural wonder, you walk down a short path possible for wheel chairs and push chairs.

Once you reach the bridge you can cross to witness the Potholes first hand.

Be sure to look down on the bridge as this provides you with a beautiful view of the rock formations.

After the bridge you can decide to walk further and dip your toes into the water. This is a must for everyone!

Our Experience

To us this was not something new. We had experienced it a few times over the years and enjoyed it each time.

Sadly the price has seemed to raise since last time we came but we cannot complain as it is still very competitive to other activities in the area and helps protect this truly spectacular natural wonder.

After entering the area we slid our shoes off and jumped straight into the water. Be warned though the floors are slippery.

Watching Ryan walk across to the other side was an experience for all the tourists not just myself.

Entry Fee

To enter Bourke’s Luck Potholes, the price at the time of writing was R25 per passenger. Which isn’t very costly when you could potentially spend a whole day here exploring.

Getting There

On the same Panorama Route as the the Blyde River Canyon, you are able to experience both in one day.

The turning is sudden with no other signs before hand, so be on the look out for a turning on the left if you have just come from the Canyon Viewpoint.

Next Stop

Yet another fantastic experience for us, that we continue to experience and enjoy we shortly moved on for food in Graskop.

Mention Graskop to anyone and they all suggest Harrie’s for the best Pancakes in Southern Africa.

To Conclude

Another activity in the Mpumalanga that we highly recommend, not only because we’ve done it plenty of times but more to the fact it is an experience for the whole family.

Plus on a nice hot summers day what better way to relax than to dip your toes into the water.
