The upcoming South African Adventure Summit is set to convene in June 2024, promising an engaging platform for activity operation owners and managers from across the country.

This gathering spotlights the vibrant adventure tourism industry, uniting both small and medium-sized businesses with established industry leaders.

The inaugural South African Adventure Summit took place in the scenic Western Cape in September 2017, spanning three enlightening days. The event featured a series of informative talks and panel discussions, delving into crucial facets of adventure tourism such as marketing strategies, booking platforms, risk management, environmental sustainability, guide training, government insights, and immersive adventure experiences.

Mark your calendars for the second South African Adventure Summit, scheduled for 11 to 14 June 2024, hosted in the stunning Champagne Valley in the enchanting Drakensberg region.

To kickstart the Summit, the day before conferencing starts will be a 'Day of Adventure.' Conference participants are invited to partake in various activities offered by local operators. These activities include day hikes, mountain biking, quad biking, zip lining, 4x4 tours, kayaking, abseiling, zip swings, Scootours, and horse riding.

A unique collaboration of the private sector and adventure industry associations will host the summit. Dirty Boots, SATSA and SAAIA unite to host the biggest-ever adventure industry get-together in Southern Africa.
