About Us

Welcome to Dusty Boots Travel, where your dream African safari adventure awaits! We are Riaan and Caroline, a passionate husband and wife duo at the helm of this vibrant journey since 2017. Our love for Africa's untouched wilderness and its majestic wildlife has been the driving force behind our dedication to crafting personalized safari experiences.

At Dusty Boots Travel, we do more than just organize safaris; we create journeys that resonate with the soul of Africa. Our focus extends beyond the extraordinary travel experience - we're committed to positively impacting wildlife, nature, and local communities. Each safari is a step towards making a meaningful difference, ensuring that the beauty of Africa is preserved for generations to come.

Our approach is unique. While many strive to offer a once-in-a-lifetime experience, we aim to ignite a lifelong love affair with Africa. Our safaris are designed to draw you back, time and again, to this enchanting land. It's not just about visiting Africa; it's about experiencing its heart, its pulse, and becoming a part of its ongoing story.

Our motto, "One Life, Live it Now!" encapsulates our philosophy. We believe in seizing the moment and immersing oneself in the wonders of now, especially when it comes to exploring the magic of Africa. As Rich Mullins aptly said, "The only man I envy is the man who has not yet been to Africa - for he has so much to look forward to."

Join us at Dusty Boots Travel, where we turn your African safari dream into a series of unforgettable, heart-stirring adventures, time after time. Let's embark on this extraordinary journey together.
