The best student DZ in SA! With the subsidizing they do for students who are club members on the ISP and CAT II programmes, this DZ know's how to breed the best!

Friendly people, good weather, massive landing area, two planes (C206t and C205) and lots of up and comming young skydivers, that strive to put what they have learnt, back into skydiving, this is a great DZ to jump at!!

Started jumping there start this year, and received a wonderfull welcome feeling from the rest of the members. Training is always fun, and with so many camaras available, it just adds to the learning curve. Safety comes first, making this club very popular for me. Weather seems to be consistent, always a light breeze for those soft landings. Overall a great club with a good vibe and great parties. I love it and will remain for a long time.

Really cool club


SKYDIVE WITBANK Rated 5 by: GPSJane on 2004-08-10

Pros: Great people and professional
Cons: Far from JHB/PTA

I just started and from the moment I spoke to someone on the phone to my first jump everyone was so helpful and nice to me! The club is great and they make the experience more fun than it already is.

This is definitely a great club to jump with.

Witbank - Mpumulanga


SKYDIVE WITBANK Rated 5 by: kuwait_is_hell on 2003-12-11

Pros: Friendly atmosphere and cheap beers
Cons: Out of the way

I finally got my AFF at Witbank in 2002. Like a lot of Brits, I went to South Africa to do it. All the instructors give excellent advice. And Paula does a mean breakfast. What a massive landing area - you can't miss it!!!
