Everyone that we came into contact with was great, very personable and helpful. It really helped us to feel comfortable during a crazy experience! Absolutely amazing. I am very happy with my first skydiving experience

Bucket list to go skydiving. When my daughter and I and a group of friends were in Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe for safari, she had done some research and decided to go here. She went one afternoon while I was quad biking with others, but it sounded so wonderful, I decided to book for the next morning before we left... More

YES. I was definitely sold on Ground Rush after reading all the other reviews, and they are spot on: this place is great! They called to reschedule my jump for a better time based on weather, they picked me up from my hotel, and the whole experience was awesome. The folks that work there are friendly and fantastic humans. The... More

What a first experience it was! And what a place to do it! The Rush Ground Adventures Skydive Swakopmund is a great team, professionnal, who makes you feel confortable during the adventure (from subscription, to the security warnings before jump, during jump and after-jump) always with security but most of all FUN! I would do it again without hesitation!

I still can't believe I signed up for this and went through with it.:-) This was my very first jump. I jumped with David (Super Dave) who was friendly and professional and made me feel safe and secure. The scariest part was leaning out of the plane. The free falling part (35s) felt peaceful and quiet, not to mention thrilling.... More

Twenty minutes of flying precedes your skydive. At some point, you realize that you will soon be outside floating in the sky that you are looking at. Fabulous! First few seconds are terrifying and then you float and spin and marvel. Great experience. Ground rush is professional and great to work with. If you have wanted to skydive, the time... 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
