[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Bourkes Luck Potholes in South Africa is another popular tourist destination in Mpumalanga. Sustained kolks in the Treur River's plunge pools have eroded a number of cylindrical potholes or giant's kettles, which can be viewed from the crags above. It was named after a local prospector, Tom Bourke, who predicted the presence of gold, though he found none himself. The pedestrian bridges connect the various overlooks of the potholes and the gorge downstream.
