Skydiving Activities

Ground Rush Adventures offer a range of airborne activities for both experienced skydivers as well as people who’ve never left the ground.

Dives for Everyone

Tandem skydives are a thrill that’s available to everyone who wants to see the Namib Desert from a new angle. The entire experience lasts about 7 minutes, although it can feel as if time is suspended while you’re up there gazing down on the beauty that is below you.

The following options are available:

  • Standard

This entry-level jump usually involves about 35 seconds of freefall.

  • 12 000 ft

The 12 000 ft jump is one of the most popular, featuring around 45 seconds of freefall.

  • 15 000 ft

This is the highest tandem jump in Africa and gives you almost a full minute of freefall.


No skydiver may carry any equipment with them until they have accumulated 200 jumps, so you can’t bring your own camera along to record your antics. The best way to get proof of your daredevil achievements is by booking one of the camera or video options available through Ground Rush Adventures.

You can get a skydiving cameraman to jump alongside to record your freefall, or you can opt for a cameraman plus a go-pro option in which your dive instructor takes over recording the footage once your chute has opened.

Dives for Qualified Skydivers

Those who’ve already achieved their skydiving qualifications are also welcome to jump with Ground Rush Adventures and have a choice of participating in solo jumps from 5 000, 10 000, 12 000 or 15 000 ft.

Skydiving Courses

Are you interested in learning the ropes when it comes to skydiving? A recognized course from Ground Rush Adventurers opens up a world of opportunity for wannabe high-flyers.

Accelerated Free Fall Course

This is the fastest way to join the wonderful world of skydiving as approved by the United States Parachute Association. Considered the most comprehensive skydiving course in the world, the AFP entails intensive ground training as well as in-air supervision.

Each learner can take their own time to master the necessary body flight and canopy skills in order to progress through the eight performance levels and achieve their qualification.

Static Line Course

A static line course is the quickest way to learn skydiving, with just 6-hours of training involved. After the initial briefing, the student is taken to the drop zone and jumps from the aeroplane with the assistance of a static line. The static line is attached to the airplane and opens the parachute automatically after a specified time.

What to Bring when you go Skydiving in Namibia

All you need to worry about is wearing something comfortable and making sure that you’re protected against the Namibian Heat. Slap on some sunscreen, bring a hat and you’re ready for some high-flying action.

Ground Rush Adventures provides all the necessary safety gear, dive suits and most importantly, the plane and parachute for your excursion.
