Sober and willing, you are strapped up and all the paperwork is signed. On the fixed-wing, propeller whirring and its take off. This is where the adrenaline begins to build up and the butterflies furiously flutter. It is only high above the clouds, when Cape Town looks like a beautiful quilt of greens, yellows and blues, that it’s time to turn and face feeling the freedom of flying. With a highly trained professional strapped to your back, you jump. There is no way to describe the feeling of skydiving, it is something that must be experienced. Tandem jumping is the safest way to experience skydiving, whether you are a complete neophyte or it’s your twentieth time. With a highly-trained professional, there is really nothing to worry about other than to feel the wind rushing into your face as the colours below you find form, and the ground gets closer.
