I and my 3 daughters (aged 19, 17 and 14) had an amazing tandem skydive experience. Mum took the photos! The site is about 30 mins out of Swapokmund in the desert; the training, as such, was minimal but we all felt 100% safe with the team at ground rush who were very friendly. They must do 1000s of tandem... More

What a lovely experience we had with this company. Craig and his team are a great combination, you guys are a complete family. They made us feel so at home that we ended up have a braai at one of the jump masters homes. Thank you for making us feel so welcome in Swakopmund. Our kids miss everything in Swakopmund... More

First of all, this is a review of the ½ day static line course (incl. 1st jump) that I took rather than the tandem skydive that most tourists go for. The static line jump is less than half the price of a tandem jump. So give it a serious consideration if you are daring enough to hop out of a... More

This was my second skydive and I loved it. Staff were great, really friendly. Prefer the landing they do here than my first one in the UK. Definite recommendation. Only issue was the delay in getting the CD/DVD I purchased of the jump as this is delivered to your hotel but mine didn't arrive until early the following morning. Overall... More

I did my first ever sky dive and it was fantastic. I have a big problem with heights but the staff made us feel very safe. They also obviously enjoyed their jobs, I their enthusiasm really rubbed off. Highly recommended Mira, Australia

The Ground Rush people really made us feel welcome from the moment we talked to them on the phone, through the pickup from the hotel and the time we had to wait at their 'airport' location, when the weather turned against us.Everybody was calm but friendly. On the next day, we actually got to do it. Everything worked as effective... More

Ground Rush Adventures provided a wonderful first sky-diving experience! When we arrived, we received a thorough briefing of what to expect, and were given jumpsuits and harnesses according to our size. After a lovely ride up in a small plane, we jumped! The free-falling is a bit scary at first, but your stomach doesn't drop like it does on a... More

I felt comfortable the moment I put my feet in their office. These guys are crazy but very professional. Before the flight we managed to have about 4 DBL Vodka Tonics and nearly 10 cigarettes, but off we went. Took a drive about 15 minutes outside of Swakopmund and got suited up and briefed on how we are supposed to... More

I was really anxious about sky diving in Namibia but I needn't have been.  The guys really know what they are doing and have done it thousands of times.  I met loads of people after I jumped that had jumped over a hundred times and were fineS.  I was really scared and my instructor knew it - he was really...

Loved it so much! I felt so safe and secure with these guys. I had no doubt that they were absolutely competent. I want to do it again and again and then have beers with the staff because they are so flipping cool. Not to mention very easy on the eyes. Lol.
