Welcome to the rush of skydiving. There is nothing like skydiving for sheer heart-stopping Adrenalin and adventure and there is no place like South Africa to do it.
South Africa's magnificent landscapes take on an extra dimension when you’re 15,000 feet in the air. If you’re brave enough to do skydiving, but not sure if you can manage it on your own just yet, then sign up for a tandem or static line skydive. Tandem skydiving allows you to experience the thrill of free fall without the effort of learning all the theory.
You will be strapped to a Tandem Instructor with a special harness that is attached to a specially designed parachute large and strong enough to support both of you.
Once out of the plane, you freefall at around 120kph - 200kph, falling for approximately 25 seconds from 9,000ft or for about 35 seconds from 11,000ft. The Tandem Instructor opens the parachute at about 5000ft, and a peaceful 3-4 minute parachute ride to the ground follows.
If your stomach can handle the thrill, then there is no doubt that skydiving in South Africa will give you the time of you life. Be prepared for an adrenaline pumping skydive over the wondrous landscapes in South Africa.
