This part of South Africa was delightful to stop and take in all of the Good Earth's offerings. Of special interest to geology buffs, viewing the "Potholes" make you just stare and wonder... Driving the Panorama Route was just beautiful surrounding this whole area. We...More

The potholes is quite a site, the views are just stunning. Fresh air and break taking views! Its definitely worth the visit. Entrance is R55 per adult. Mpumalanga gets rainy in the summer so time your visit well for the best views.

Another fascinating attraction not to be missed. Bourke's Luck Potholes is absolutely incredible. To see what nature has done over time is amazing. The site is part of the Panorama Route and an ideal spot for a lunchtime picnic between visiting the Lisbon and Berlin...More
