Bourke's Luck Potholes are without doubt incredible.

Essentially they're the result of decades of swirling eddies of water where the Treur River

meets the Blyde River, the tumult of which has caused extensive water erosion over time.

The result is a series of cylindrical rock sculptures that look as though they would be more comfortable on the moon.

We stop at the 3 Rondawels

The view point is spectacular.

From here one looks over the canyon to the Three Rondavels on the other side of the northern edges of the 

Drakensberg range of mountains. An outlook that is overwhelmingly beautiful and deserves more than a moment's respite.

We drop down the plateau and turn down a dust road via Exeter to something truly amazing and hart warming. Jessica a 2 ton tame hippo
