Clay pigeon shooting

An exciting new activity in the Cape Winelands! Clay Pigeons are catapulted into the air in varying formations. The goal is to obliterate the quickly-disappearing target before it hits the ground. You’ll have loads of fun trying to hit as many as possible whilst the hosts made sure you are suitably challenged. This activity is great for families (the minimum age is 6). It’s safe and will keep the non-drinkers entertained for hours.

Insider Tip: Shooting not your cup of tea? Head up to the tasting room and sample a few of the estate’s fine wines whilst watching the action.


The magnificent Atlantis Dune field on Cape Town’s West Coast is a perfect spot to try your hand (or feet) at sandboarding. The location offers amazing views across Table Bay and towering white sand dunes ranging up to 114 feet high. This a must-do adventure activity while in the Cape.

Insider Tip: For a great family day out on the West Coast, combine sandboarding with a visit to !Khwa ttu San Cultural Centre and The West Coast Fossil Park.
