Very good experience, and had the best instructors! We were a group at 14 people and we all jumped at the same day. They also made these great videos you could take home.

Hi, The time slots are 10am and 2pm. I suggest book in the morning, Swakopmund mostly has fog early mornings and late afternoon. February and March are months with the best weather so anytime would be a good time to book.
