Adventure activities, just by their nature and name must have a risk factor.  Without any risk there would be no adventure.  However, we still need all commercial adventure activities to be managed in a responsible manner.  There is currently no South African Adventure Association that governs all activities and experiences, hopefully in the near future such an association will exist.  For this reason Dirty Boots has complied a list of associations and governing bodies that will assist you in deciding which operator to use for your next adventure. 

Please feel free to contact any of these associations listed below, to confirm that your adventure operator of choice, is still a member.
