- Skydive over the oldest desert in the world
- See the point where the Atlantic meets the Namib dunes
Taking a skydive over the Namib desert is an epic experience - this is thought to be the oldest desert in the world, and its name translates to ‘the vast place’. It is an immense, arid expanse where virtually no humans live, that sees very little rain, and where the sand dunes can reach 300m high - the second tallest in the world. It is a truly awe-inspiring place to see from above.
After a transfer from Swakopmund, you’ll fly up to high altitude in a small plane before stepping out into thin air, with an amazing free fall of 35 seconds! Then after the instructor tugs the cord, it’s a stately glide down to earth for around seven minutes. As you parachute down you will be able to see where the Namib dunes meet the Atlantic Ocean, and you may also see some desert wildlife including ostrich, antelope, maybe even a desert elephant!
