One of the best experiences I have ever had, hands down

As an asthmatic I was a little scared in the hour or so leading up to the dive but they completely reassured me and gave me advice. I was one of the first skydivers of the day and... read more

As an asthmatic I was a little scared in the hour or so leading up to the dive but they completely reassured me and gave me advice. I was one of the first skydivers of the day and dived tandem with Frank. On the way up, the 4 professionals chatted to us and we got an incredible view of the... More

Tandem Masters were chill and calming down anyone with pre-jump nerves. They were all extremely understanding of whether people wanted a more relaxed experience or a little more adrenaline. Jump itself is about 30s of freefall with ~6 minutes with the canopy open. It's preceded by a 20 minute flight up to 10,000 feet, look around and see the Skeletn... More

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...
