about us

Bottelary Adventures is run by Paul Claassen, who is passionate about the outdoors especially Athletics, Rugby, Cricket and Cross country.
Paul has also excelled in boxing and martial arts, Zambesi River rafting and white water kayaking.

Paul ran his first 10 miler in August 1978 and has since run 14 Comrades marathons, the Washie 100 Miler (1991), Skyrun (2001) and Mkweni Marathon (2007), 5 Ultra Triathlons and 5 Duzi canoe marathons.

Lately he enjoys hiking around Cape Town, and Bootcamp fitness exercising.

Paul is a certified Personal and Conditioning Trainer, and Self Defence Instructor.


Because of his love for fitness and the outdoors, Paul recognised the need for a venue where like-minded outdoor enthusiasts could enjoy a variety of activities geared towards not just fitness, but also fun. A place where families and friends could come together to challenge each other in strength and endurance. This soon evolved into a demand for corporate team building, and even kids parties.

In 2020 Paul set about designing and built the obstacle course, with the vision to add other outdoor activities that are lacking in Cape Town.

The range of fitness activities that Bottelary Adventures offers include the obstacle course, boot camps, functional training, running routes, team building and a shooting range.
For those who enjoy more relaxed outdoor fun there is putt putt and Jukskei.
