On my bucket list trip to South Africa, I had planned a number of adrenaline activities, and having recently done my 6th tandem skydive in the UK, I decided ‘why not do my first international one in South Africa?’

I googled skydiving sites near Johannesburg as I was staying at Sun City at the time, and found Skydive Parys who had some great reviews so booked my jump.

On 24th Sept, I drove 3 hours from Sun City and arrived at Skydive Parys. Received a very warm welcome, and was then briefed in English, even though the other 2 jumpers were South African and the majority of speech was in Afrikaans. I then met my tandem master, Corne, who was great and, when I mentioned I had jumped before, then asked me if I wished to pull the cord for our chute myself! I was a little nervous to begin with, but he showed me how it’s done and made me feel comfortable.

Eventually it was time to jump, and we climbed into the plane. On the way up to 11,000 feet, jump height, Corne gave me a history/geography lesson for the area, explaining how the area we were jumping into was created by a meteor strike years ago.

Jump time arrived. Our camera man took his position, we took ours, and then it was out the door. Free falling for approx 35 secs at approx 120mph, it was amazing. Corne then showed me the gun symbol with his fingers, our signal to open the chute, and with a quick tug on the ‘golf ball’, it opened. On the way down, he allowed me to make a few turns with the control lines, and then it was time to land.

All in all a fabulous experience with very friendly team, made all the better by my first chance to open our chute myself. Would thoroughly recommend this location and team. Baie Dankie to all involved for a Lekker experience.

Wow I am at a lost of words. This has been on my bucket list for some time and thanks to Skydive Parys affordable prices I could tick this off my list and add a new one. Getting my own skydive license.
Never would I have thought that I would enjoy this so much that I would want to go back for more.
Thank you to the team at Skydive Parys for the friendly and professional service. Thank you Chris for looking after me and making the experience so amazing. Look out for me as I WILL BE BACK!

I made my first tandem skydive at age 68 after being incited by my son who started skydiving 6 months ago. The atmosphere at the club was friendly and very welcoming. The instructors were very professional and experienced and the video material is of good quality. It was a worth while experience that I will remember with fondness.

What an awesome experience! Been wanting to skydive for a very long time so happy that I did the jump in Parys. The team working there are all super friendly and very professional. They walk you through what is going to happen and put you at ease with the level attention and reassurance. Would defiantly recommend Skydive Parys to anyone wanting to skydive.

Oh my word...... Chris! Your team were fantastic, if anyone feels any kind of anxiety whatsoever to do this, then just go with Skydive Parys. There is a whole lot of humor and fun on the LZ before heading out on the plane for an amazing view of the Vredefort area, the Vaal river, Vaal De Grace and Parys Country Club. This view is even better once you leave the plane except you have several different emotions running through your head that makes you feel alive!!!

My instructor made me feel very comfortable and everyone was very friendly. They were constantly making jokes which makes it easier to enjoy. It was safe and they went out of their way to make it more special as we were celebrating a special occasion. A memorable experience with great people. No Regrets

What an indescribable experience!!!! Chris and your entire Team, Thank You!!!! You made my Mother-in-Laws 70th Birthday extra special - she is still flying :)

From the moment we walked into your Club House we were made to feel like family, so welcoming, friendly and relaxing. We wish we were closer just for the vibe you have going on there.

Skydive Parys are consummate professionals and in my opinion the only place to skydive from. Miss you all already :)

Loved everything about Skydive Parys. I had an amazing experience, have wanted to skydive for many years and finally I did it. Skydive Parys was an amazing choice, and I would recommend it to other people. I liked how the instructors were so welcoming and cracking up jokes with you from the beginning till the end.

Thank you Chris and Elmarie you guys were amazing, and the hospitality was greatly appreciated.
