In particular, the world renowned Kruger National Park, with several luxurious private nature reserves on it's western boundary, are literally teeming with wildlife and is one of South Africa's top tourist attractions. This is big game country where visitors can see the 'Big Five' , namely the elephant, black rhino, leopard, lion and buffalo. 'Big Five' originated from trophy hunters who termed them as being the most dangerous to hunt.
Some of the popular attractions include the Blyde River Canyon, one of Africa's true scenic gems, and Bourke's Luck Potholes. The Bourke's Luck Potholes are a magnificent natural feature where the combination of water and rock have succeeded over many centuries, in carving huge cylindrical potholes into the rock-face.
