While hurtling towards the ground may not be everyone’s cup of tea, those who do get a kick out of vertical veloc- ity should head to Adventure Skydives. While it has outposts dotted through- out Jo’burg, we recommend Carletonville Airport for the best jumps in town. Stepping out of a plane solo may be a little intimidating for some, which is where Adventure Skydive’s trained in- structors come in handy for assisted tandem jumps. Strapped to someone that knows what they’re doing, all you have to do is enjoy the ride and not worry about pulling any pesky cords. The drop-zone facilities aren’t bad, either, with a snack bar and picnic ta- bles to enjoy lunch on – just make sure you eat after your jump.
