Parachutes and airplanes

As mentioned in my previous post, Kerry-Anne took to the sky in a small plane and tumbled out of the plane at 10,000 feet with an instructor who (fortunately) had one of these attached to his back.

Have you jumped? If not, you really should consider it when visiting Cape Town - the view from up there is remarkable (or so Kerry-Anne tells me) and the rush is unlike any other!

For reference, the entire experience took about 45 minutes (from walking in the door, to walking out after the jump) and the cost was a R1750. Downhill Adventures will also video the experience for another few hundred Rand, depending on the option that you choose.

    Thrill of a lifetime indeed. And it’s become so affordable these days. The best part about a tandem jump is you don’t have to know anything, you don’t have to remember anything, you just fall and enjoy the 6000ft drop into nothingness before the parachute opens :)
