Skydiving is the one item that features on almost every bucket list. Skydiving in Cape Town is, without a doubt, one of the most spectacular settings in the world, with the views of Table Mountain; one of the seven wonders in the world. Table Bay with beautiful blue water and even Robben Island, which is the famous prison where Nelson Mandela spent many years. There’s no better way to experience Cape Town than in freefall. Go on - take the plunge!

A 35-minute drive north along the R27 or West Coast road as it’s more commonly known is all it takes for you to be whisked from the Cape Town city centre to the closest skydiving drop zone to South Africa’s tourism capital, boasting one of the best views in the world from altitude.
On the way up in the aircraft to your tandem skydive, the view is breathtaking. To the south, the city bowl lies sandwiched between towering Table Mountain and bustling Table Bay harbour. Further south, and to the far side of the mountain, lies False Bay, Hout Bay and the splendour of the south peninsula as far as Cape Point. To the west, you will spot Robben Island and the Atlantic Ocean breaking on the beautiful Cape West Coast, as famous for its icy water temperature as its mouth-watering crayfish. To the north, the Langebaan lagoon, a great kitesurfing and windsurfing venue.
