Skydiving in the Waterberg
SSkydive Xtreme is the only skydiving tour operator in Limpopo and is based out of the Modimolle Airport.

TThe aircraft used is a Cessna 206T that is type-certified (SACAA approved) specifically for skydiving. The crew is also highly-trained, and safety is taken very seriously.
Don’t make your skydive all about you, bring your family and friends along to enjoy a braai at the pool so they can share in your aerial exploits. Overnight facilities are available should you wish to spend more time in this beautiful part of the country.
Apart from tandem skydiving, Skydive Xtreme also offers static line courses, an Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) programme, formation skydiving, free-flying, wing-suiting, tracking dives and canopy swooping.
