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.

What an incredible experience to fly from Swakopmund to Walvis Bay and then jump out with your talented tandem guide over the Namibia desert, absolutely exhilarating!!

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.

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
