About Dirty Boots

South Africa is one of the top adventure destinations currently in the world with a great variety of activities and vacations to offer the local and international tourist. South African adventures are unique in many aspects often combining wildlife experiences with adventure; these include activities such as walking safaris, hot air ballooning safaris, canoeing safaris and horse safaris.

The reason South Africa is such a great outdoor adventure destination is due to the fact that we have great weather and a variety of geographical features including deserts, forests, mountains, plains, oceans, lakes and rivers.

South Africa’s marine adventures include shark cage diving, whale watching, surfing, sea kayaking, scuba diving, power boating, sailing charters, seal snorkeling, deep sea fishing and many more.

With the warm Indian Ocean on the one side and the cold Atlantic on the other side the options are endless.

Adventure in the sky varies from extreme to mild including activities such as: Skydiving, hot air ballooning, Paragliding, hang gliding, soaring, aerobatic flights, gyrocopter flips and scenic helicopter flights.

Other popular adventures in South Africa are canopy tours, bungee jumping, zip lines, kloofing, rock climbing, sandboarding and adventure caving.

It features the best adventure operators in the country including over 100 different outdoor activities.
