5 STARS! I just watched my skydiving video that they created and had a huge smile on my face. The guys are really nice, and they keep you calm and comfortable. David shot my video and I was strapped to Frank for the tandem jump. I went a week ago with two other friends. I was pretty reluctant since I... More

We used ground rush for our skydive in November 2014 and the service was appalling. We were picked up 2pm and it took about 10 minutes to get to the sky dive site. We then waited patiently for our turn to jump. There were 6 jumpers in our group plus 6 other jumpers. By 6pm all the other jumpers had... More

Never thought I'd do it, but it was one of the most awesome experiences ever! The Dive Masters are professional but fun and the scenery is breath taking.

I spent quite a bit of time in Namibia and jumped a few times at Ground Rush. The team down there are so much fun, they are measured and safe and their drop zone is the most spectacularly beautiful place in the world to jump... some of the best experiences in my life.

I did a tandem with an instuctor called Dries 5 years ago and it was incredible, one of the best experiences of my life! All the instructors are friendly and there's a bar onsite to chill out and have a beer before and/or after the jump!

This is something that will almost certainly change you for the better, whether you realize it or not. I'll leave out the superlative-laden description of my own personal and deeper experience, and allow you to live that part for yourself in your own way. I was in Swakopmund looking for something to do in late September of 2014 (around the... More

My son and I did a tandem dive with Ground Rush for my 52nd birthday! We absolutely loved it. We felt safe and comfortable at all times. The photographers did a great job of capturing the sky dive and were well worth it for a lifetime memory.

If you are going to jump out of an airplane, this is the place to do it. Great crew, quick sign up, stunning vistas, and the most gut wrenching experience of my life. But not only did I do the jump, I let my two kids do it, and we all loved the experience!

This is a must for anyone, young or old!! Such a good experience. Scary as anything, but you'll not be able to stop smiling for about 3 hours afterwards. The adrenaline is amazing! And they sell beers on site, so you can calm your nerves afterwards. Definitely recommend this place.
