Very nice team

I felt safe and in good hands the whole time. It was my first skydive and I had a great time! I can recommend this experience to anyone (in good health;)

I did my first jump (tandem) and was quite nervous but everyone there helps you feel at ease and in safe hands. My instructor was David who was very friendly, helpful and professional. I found there was only a short period which was very scary which was as you are about to leave the plane. The freefalling felt very controlled... More

I planned my trip to go through Namibia just to skydive and I was not disappointed! My instructor kept me laughing and relaxed the whole way up as I was freaking out, reassured all my fears and ensured I had the best experience! It was the scariest thing I've ever done but the most incredible! As soon as I was... More

Ground Rush is doing a superb job with well organised systems and an excellent, friendly and caring crew!! I may very well have been the most difficult customer of the century, who on top of being the biggest scary-cat and nervous wreck, was not exactly feeling great after a "long" evening. These guys did a great job calming me and... More

I loved doing this! The jump was arranged prior to my trip to Namibia really to ensure that I didnt "chicken out" and I am so glad that I did that. The organisation was friendly and efficient. I was make to feel comfortable from the moment that I entered the office. After quickly completing the paperwork I was driven to... More

I skydive all over the globe and I visited Ground Rush Adventures recently. The staff are amazing and I really felt at home. I would advise anyone interested in skydiving to visit this establishment. For those not so keen to jump on there own visit them for a tandem skydive. The scenery is second to none. We got to see... More

I was in swakomund on a group tour and I had read the reviews of ground rush before arriving and I wasn't disappointed. They'll drive you out to the sky diving site (about 10 mins away) and there you will wait for your turn to jump(might take a few hours depending on how many people are jumping). There are toilets...

Reservation office was quick and informative. My daughter (13) dived with Jack and his was really great with her. As we had a rental car, (we followed the bus to the site) so we could thus leave as soon as she was done, and not wait for EVERYONE else to finish. I think that would have been very boring. I...

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
