South Africa is one of the best countries to try SkyDiving in. They have flying clubs in many cities so even if you are going to South Africa for a short time and to a particular city or Region, you will definitely have an option nearby to do the skydive. the most popular places to skydive in South Africa are Pretoria, Durban, Plettenberg Bay, Mossel Bay and Cape Town.
The prices are almost similar everywhere i.e., ZAR 1850-2100 per person and the video footage with a GoPro 4 are charged extra at ZAR 350-400 per person. To see a sample price list, click here. The instructors are very experienced and friendly and will make sure that you have a good time. We did our skydive at Plettenberg Bay with SkyDive Plett and the views were spectacular here !
Here is my skydive video,
We were extremely happy with our skydive. We had booked through our backpacker hostel a day in advance and were to leave early morning but because of the weather, it got delayed. The guys at Skydive Plett were very helpful and sent someone to pick up us up and take us to the airport. You have a choice of jumping from 10,000 ft or 12,000 ft, airport landing or beach landing and the prices increase accordingly. We chose a tandem jump, 10,000 ft airport landing which is the most popular and have no regrets. I had a freefall of 34 seconds and Karan’s freefall was 28 seconds.
If you choose the 12000 ft option, you will get a few seconds extra freefall time. Beach landing, is well, just fancy. You can consider it as a photo op.
Plattenberg Bay was my chosen destination for the first skydive but no matter where you find the opportunity, don’t miss the experience of Skydiving !
