Airboat Rides in South Africa. Where can I ride an airboat?
Sunny skies and a fast and stealthy ride through magnificent landscapes; airboats are a thrilling way to explore the dams and waterways of South Africa. Being one of the 30th driest country’s in the world South Africa has an abundance of large dams. For landlocked South African’s dams have long been synonymous with water sports fun under the sun. With the arrival of Airboats in SA that just got a whole lot more exciting.
Airboats might evoke images of crocodile hunts on the Florida Everglades and daring rescues by heroic US law enforcement officers but they are just as at home here where they provide the perfect ride for water based game viewing and bird watching as well as wildlife photography and fishing. Since the bottom of these vessels are flat and there are no operating parts below the waterline, airboats can navigate shallow swampy waters. This opens huge possibility for exploring and revealing new secret places.
