Skydive with Skyhigh Tandems in Carletonville, West Rand

Carltonville Tandem Skydiving, West Rand, GautengSkyhigh Tandems in Carltonville offers skydiving with a difference – the fast speed at which you rush towards the ground due to the thin air in the Highveld. The company offers a whole range of activities from a tandem skydive, where you, as a completely inexperienced novice, can feel the rush without the responsibility, to the serious stuff like free falling or static line jumps.

In the tandem jump, after a quick briefing, you are good to go, attached to an instructor with a special harness for two. You will jump out the aircraft together and free fall for about 40 seconds before the instructor pulls the chute. And once the chute opens, you can look forward to a gentle five to eight minute canopy ride back down to earth. You do get to help guide the chute to the target at the drop zone, so you are not a total  passenger!

Skydiving, Free Fall and Tandem in Carltonville

If free-falling is your game, suit up and do a daring jump from an aeroplane cruising at an altitude of 11000 feet. Carletonville’s drop zone, at 5 500-feet above sea level, offers a very different experience to aerial jumps done at a sea level destination.

It is essential to book once-off jumps or courses well in advance. Carletonville’s Drop Zone operates over weekends and most public holidays. Note: the minimum jump age is 16 and the maximum weight is 100-kilograms.
