We were picked up from our hotel and after a short journey, arrived at the desert site. I was a little nervous and when I got there my heart sank a bit. It was a series of huts, with a group of students drinking beer, and at first, I couldn't see anyone in charge. This made me a bit more... More

Sooo good. Great service, professional yet friendly and relaxed. Went skydiving, excellent value for money, staff and organisation were great. Good fun and very friendly with humour and care for the nerves! It's obviously not for the feint hearted but if you're going to do it - do it here! Views were amazing, planes are tiny, skydive was awesome.

I can't fault this company, everything about the experience was perfect. The staff were warm, reassuring and professional and were even able to calm down my hysterical Mum as I was about to jump. I felt totally safe in the arms of the 'worlds most experienced tandem skydiver' and the views from 10000ft above Namibia were priceless. Would recommend to... More

First time I went for a skydive. Was welcomed by the owner and put at ease with a smile and a beer. I did my tandem with David, a very good instructor. Went for the option photo/video and was very pleased with the result. I would advise this experience to all!

I did a 6 hour static line course, my instructor David made me feel completely comfortable about jumping out of a plane solo; that is not an easy task to achieve! While he drilled in all the important things I was also having a great time. My girlfriend also jumped tandem in the same plane and as soon as we... More

Short and simple : Professional, exceptionally friendly and relaxed staff. Went down for ONE day to Swakopmund to go Skydiving. The Ground Rush Adventures team was very accommodating and went out of their way to have me jump sooner than excepted, so that I was able to go back to Windhoek after jumping. Everything was well planned, organized and safe.

We had to wait a long time to do the paperwork and pay at the office whilst the unorganised staff member talked about death and wrenching chicken necks. Not appropriate or amusing, despite myself having a good sense of humour. We were then taken out to the jump site and had to wait for at least two hours before suiting... More

From start to finish, this amazing team ensures a safe and exciting experience. Their offices were located at the lodge I was staying at on a 6 month tour from Cairo to Cape Town (Amanpuri). Weather was constantly monitored to ensure complete safety, and when the skies cleared, I was shuttled to the flight area (to the appropriate tune of... More
