Target Shooting in Cape Town, South Africa.

Looking for an unusual activity to get older kids (8 years and up) out of the house and off their screens to participate in some family fun that they won’t moan about? Cape Town’s target shooting range is in a quarry dug into the side of the pretty Elsies Peak mountain between Fish Hoek and Simonstown. It’s a pleasant environment to spend a few hours target shooting and close to other attractions like Boulders Beach and lovely swimming beaches and tidal pools, so you can make a day of it.
