Perfect environment, great professional people and lots of Jägermeister

Skydive Swakopmund - Swakopmund Skydiving Club Rated 5 by: RHOP on 2013-05-24

Pros: Relaxed vibai areae, Professional and friendly staff, Packing area, Great environment, Student progression, Nice bar and
Cons: The babalaas the next morning...;-)

Skydive Swakopmund is a fantastic place to jump! I was here for a couple of weeks started with a static line course and progressed to my A-license, thanks to the great people who shared their enthusiasm and jumping experience with me.
Everyone is relaxed and friendly and there are very good instructors with plenty of years of jumping experience, always willing to help. The location is great with a relaxed flight over the dunes and a large dropzone. Also for people wanting to do a tandem jump it’s a great place, I’ve seen many happy people afterwards with great video’s of their jumps.
But best of all is definitely the bar at the end of a nice jumping day with lots and lots of cold Jägermeisters!
If you want to jump in a great environment with professional people and lots of fun, you should go here!

Very relaxed, yet professional and safe DZ. Great people

Skydive Swakopmund - Swakopmund Skydiving Club Rated 5 by: boudreaux on 2013-03-20

Pros: Well organized, professional, walk in gear locker
Cons: Long climb to altitude, but the view is awesome

If you are looking to get in 9 jumps a day all to 12k altitude, this dropzone will not be for you. (Apart from boogie time)

But if you are interested in jumping at a very relaxed, yet professional dropzone with friendly folks you should certainly visit!

Packing area is large and air conditioned, gear locker a walk-in and fire proof, bar has all you need including food, landing area is huge, and the team will do their best to accommodate you.

Jumped here and enjoyed it! The view over the desert and ocean is great, the team helped me where they could and the nights at the DZ bar were long...

Will certainly come back!

Vintage dropzone with gorgeuous views and and the lowest percentage of tandems per load I have ever

Skydive Swakopmund - Swakopmund Skydiving Club Rated 5 by: PPFerreira on 2013-02-07

Pros: The amazing scenery and the friendliness of the crew!
Cons: Misty mornings...

Swakopmund Skydiving Club. That says it all!

Loads of history, a world famous Christmas Boogie, a magic bell that rings jagermeister on the counter of the bar. If you’re a skydiver it will feel like the strange wonderful place you would call home!

Place it in the Namibian desert, close enough to the ocean so you fly over it every time you climb (beach jumps are a must!), just beside the perfect stretch of dunes you also fly over, that on sunset jumps become the scenery of movies... I just lost my chain of thought.

Guarding it from tandems overloads or skygod’s vanities is Mr. Eddie Techman or Master Yoda for some friends. With an open heart you will find all that matters in this pearl of the old days that, if you’re lucky enough, you’ll be able to enjoy nowadays.

Swakomund Skydive Club at Swakopmund Airport

Skydive Swakopmund - Swakopmund Skydiving Club Rated 5 by: BrendonCCA on 2011-08-04

Pros: Awesome people, neat hangars, safety conscious, secure large walk in safe for rigs
Cons: sometimes bad weather, but that's at all dropzones

Did my training there and love the place.
The club is like a extended family.

Think about safety, if all the paramedics who skydive in Namibia skydive at Swakopmund Skydive Club, what does that tell you of the safety there. It's our first choice and only choice for paramedics.

No price can be placed on your life.

The bar is good with the normal bell for the 'sinners'. Professional instruction, and pilots who are fun and friendly.
