Skydiving in KwaZulu-Natal

The skies of KwaZulu-Natal offer an extreme(ly) different way to take in the beauty of the province.

Skydivers love KwaZulu-Natal because the air is fresh and the scenery is fantastic – whether you are jumping out of a plane at the coast or somewhere inland. Because of the province’s great climate, skydiving takes place throughout the year.

The Durban Skydive Centre is open 7 days a week from 9am to 2pm and will accommodate anyone who weighs less than 110kg. You can do a tandem jump at 8 000ft for R1600; or, for an extra R250, you can do a tandem from 12 000ft on the weekend.

Visit the Durban Skydive Centre website for more information.

Blue Sky, which is based in the hinterland town of Cato Ridge, offers tandem sky dives for R1 650, or R2 050 if you’d like a DVD of your jump to show off to friends and family. Visit the Blue Sky website for more information.
