Namibia has the cheapest jump in the world, with Namib Desert and Atlantic Ocean the view on the plane was amazing! Ground Rush adventures was professional and kept communicating with us from 8am in the morning as we the weather was foggy. We finally got picked up at 12pm and the jump was briefed very well and was done within two hours. Highly recommend!

Ever since I booked my trip to Namibia I had been trying to convince myself to sky dive. Not liking open air heights and having a not-so-great time in Vietnam abseiling due to this I was struggling to take the leap (excuse the pun!). However, I'm a firm believer that fear is just social conditioning so I took the plunge and booked up - so glad I did!

I've no doubt this wasn't the most exciting dive for these guys (I just wanted to 'do it' the first time, no frills!) but they were not only respectful but also so relaxed about it that you couldn't help but get a sense of 'this'll be fine'. And it was more than fine. Even the part where you actually have to get your feet out of the aeroplane is so well done that you have no opportunity to 'think' and before you know it you're free falling but feeling like you're swimming on a cushion of air with an incomparable adrenaline rush complimented by an amazing view.

All in all with a video package (there are 3 on offer, I chose number 2) I paid the equivilent of £238 and I have not only widened my comfort zone but I have found something else I would gladly do again - and be more adventurous next time!

If you're thinking about this, just do it!

Let's start off by saying I'm afraid of heights & don't particularly like flying but must do something at least once , so booked my trip with Ground Rush after reading all the great reviews on TripAdvisor. Did the 2.30pm jump on 20 June 2017 with Chris. After safety briefing up we went on this small plane with no door. Chris explained the area while ascending & they made me feel quite comfortable & safe , even with 5 of us in this small plane. I took the videographer package as this was a once in a lifetime , never to be repeated experience. One last briefing from Chris , banana shape , tuck legs in , hold shoulder straps & fall. Whoa at 220km/h they told me , free falling for 35seconds & then about 5 plus minutes of floating peacefully down to earth after taking control of the shute for a short while. Having said the above the best part , although scary when sitting on edge of plane , was the actual free fall which cannot be described. What a rush & all caught on video. The landing was nice & soft under Chris's guidance. Can't believe I did it , thanks Ground Rush for an awesome experience , the video & bucket load of photos was really worth it.

The team make you feel absolutely comfortable before, during and after. Very professional and chilled. The ride up in the Cessna 206 was magical overlooking the dessert and the sea. That initial adrenaline rush cannot be described in words! The whole view down you totally forget about all your troubles and enjoy life at its fullest! I would 100% do it again! Amazing!!!!
