There are places you need to see once in a lifetime. So the saying goes. However skydiving over the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt is something you want to do twice in a lifetime, at least.

C130 Hercules

Just the action of opening the tailgate in a Hercules is something that runs shivers down the spine of a skydiver. Then the view onto the Cairo/Giza metropolitan area with its 15,000,000 inhabitants is just breathtaking. Jumping out of this enormous, awe-inspiring aircraft and seeing the only remaining seventh wonders of the ancient world below you is more than special.

If you have jumped over The Palm dropzone in Dubai, you enjoy the view. But after several jumps it becomes some kind of normal. Jumping above The Pyramids on the other hand, is even after several jumps something that only can be described as moving and exciting.

The sheer mass of these buildings, even from more than 4,000m (13,000 feet) is something you truly can feel even at exit altitude. Freefalling towards the three pyramids, you don’t even want to turn points, you just want to enjoy the view.

The Pyramids

The ride under canopy, especially the part low and close to The Pyramids is deeply impressive, to say at least. They are 140m high and made of 3 million bricks, each weighing 2.5 tons. For sure these are the biggest buildings in the world you can skydive above, fly your canopy around and land it next to. It’s something you just can’t get enough of. Even packing in the shadow of The Pyramids is somehow very special.

So for those who never been there, this is truly the jump of a lifetime. And for those who have been there, once is not enough. At least twice in a lifetime is better.
