It can get confusing, when asking locals in Venda about the Tshatshidi Potholes, not least because their local soccer team is called the Tshatshidi Potholes, but also because not everyone knows where these potholes are, or that they exist.

But once the word is out, Tshatshidi should become a firm favourite for visitors to Limpopo, as the main pothole, deep and frightening as it is, easily rivals the Bourke Luck Potholes when it comes to beauty, and they are a lot less touristy.

Water from the Mutale River, the same river to feed the sacred site of Lake Fundudzi, falls into a series of natural water features, one of which is 30 metres deep. Legend has it that in days of old local witches were drowned here. Find the potholes close to the villages of Tshidzivhe and Makwarani near Lake Fundudzi and Thathe Vondo.

Whilst beautiful, the main pothole is dangerous. Go with a guide.
