Many people ask, What is adventure tourism?

Adventure tourism is a type of niche tourism that combines physical activity, as well as promoting excitement, adrenalin, and exploration. There is also a perceived sense of risk that tends to come with adventure tourism. Not all adventure tourism is extreme though, it could be anything from riding a bike on Table Mountain to white water rafting on the Zambezi river.
