In the big picture, cars, furniture, clothing, gadgets and knick-knacks mean very little. When you stand on the threshold of the Pearly Gates looking back on life, your most valuable memories are those built from experiences - especially those shared with friends and family.

At Dirty Boots, we treasure our friends, family and going on adventures. Over the past 15 years, we have visited, enjoyed and collected together hundreds of activities offered by dozens of operators throughout South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland. We are motivated by discovering and sharing different types of activities, challenges, places and people;  experiences that have enriched our lives

Dirty Boots brings the cornucopia of activities on our doorstep to your fingertips so that you can plan adventure-rich visits, weekends and vacations. We encourage you to experience cities differently and to see another side to small towns through the activities that are available. Whether your preference is slackpacking and bird watching or abseiling and snorkelling-with-seals, we have the options for you.

Through booked activities, solo travellers meet locals and other visitors to see and experience the best features of an area. By undertaking an adventure, you will return home with the best stories to tell. For families, couples, groups of friends and work colleagues, shared experiences have a lifespan far longer than the duration of the activity. Reminiscing revitalises memories and brings laughter and smiles through the retelling.

In the words of former US First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, ” The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience”.

With the Dirty Books website and glossy, full-colour, annual printed booklet in your pocket, some of the best experiences in your life are only a booking away.
