BOURKES LUCK POTHOLES

A visit to the Bourke's Luck Potholes from Thaba Tsweni Lodge is a must!
At the confluence of the Blyde and Treur Rivers, rapids and whirlpools occur.
Through millions of years, water-borne sand and rock moving through these whirlpools, have scoured smooth-sided potholes into the original riverbed. 

These potholes have become known as the Bourke’s Luck Potholes, where the combined force of the Blyde and Treur Rivers have cut a deep 26km long canyon known as the Blyde River Canyon.
