False Bay Firearm Training Academy - Target Shooting operator in Cape Town, South Africa.

Surely one of the most spectacular locations in the world for a shooting range? For this alone, False Bay Firearm Training Academy is worth a visit. Nestled in a historic quarry in the shadow of Elsies Peak near Simon’s Town, the views of the False Bay Coast from the range are inspiring. Between June and November, the sight of Humpback and Southern Right whales is common in the bay. Add an exciting component to your day and combine an adrenalin-fuelled target shooting session with your False Bay or Cape Town tour.

If you’ve thrown a balled-up piece of paper at a dustbin and got it in, or a pebble at a post and hit it, and experienced the tiniest bloom of satisfaction then you’ll love Target Shooting. False Bay Firearm Training Academy offers a wide range of firearms for target shooting in our beautiful cliff-backed shooting range; Ak-47’s, pump-action shotguns, and handguns to name a few. Our Target Shooting packages include training by highly qualified instructors with long lists of accolades to their names, the firearm of choice, shooting range amenities, and ear and eye protection.

Target shooting is a great choice for corporates looking for a fun and productive team build and a meaningful day out.
