Become John Wick or The Terminator with clay pigeon shooting

Shoot safely with trained pros at Clay Pigeon Adventures

Last updated: Wednesday, 17 January 2024

Have you added clay pigeon shooting to your bucket list? At Lourensford Wine Estate, pros teach you how to shoot real bullets in a safe and controlled environment – you’ll feel just like John Wick or The Terminator.

With packages called John Wick, Terminator or Jason Bourne, this is for anyone who’s ever wanted to try the thrilling rush of shooting. Pigeons made from clay are hung up across various distances and shot using real bullets. Shooting is done outdoors on a shaded deck (sun protection is advised). We featured Clay Pigeon Adventures in our Ultimate Summer Bucket List series: Get a taster via the Instagram page.

This bucket list activity is done in a safe and controlled space, where professionals assist you. Shooters can join with no prior experience as instructors will show you the ins and outs of shooting before you begin. There’s also private sessions and sniper experiences available. 

A standard entry package comes with one rifle and starts from R650. There’s also packages like Al Capone and The Saint, which include a tommy gun, 45A CP, 357 MAG and a 9mm, AR15 and shotgun respectively. These can cost up to R1 950pp. Included in the price are safety equipment, firearms and ammunition. Spectators are also welcome (at R150pp). 

Enjoy thrilling fun with the help of professionals. Image: Clay Pigeon Adventures


Clay pigeon shooting is only for those 16 years and up. For younger kids, Lourensford Estate has a market, art gallery, art jamming, an MTB track, Padel, archery, fishing and more. Lourensford also offers a variety of restaurants like Ghenwa’s Culinary Club and The Millhouse Kitchen, or for a light snack, there’s the Red Riding Hood Deli.
