  Rosslyn Safaris is the oldest-established hunting safari company in Zimbabwe, Southern Africa. Rosslyn Safaris is owned by Peter Johnstone, a key founder of the hunting industry in Zimbabwe. Rosslyn Safaris offers both bow hunting and rifle hunting for leopard, sable and plains game on its own land and can also combine hunts with dangerous game hunts on other hunting properties within Zimbabwe. 

Rosslyn Safaris hunts out of Cawston Block, which is a dedicated safari area of 32,000 acres located close to Bulawayo on the Victoria Falls road. When it was first bought in the late 1980s it had very little game or grass. Intensive management, some luck with the rains, and major restocking of wildlife effected a transformation. The result is a superb leopard, sable and plains game safari area - a piece of African paradise. With a wide range of free roaming wild animals, including cheetah and amazing bird life there is much to see. Our sable average around 39 and can reach 42 with the largest shot being 44.

Bow hunting is our specialty with 13 blinds, some ground level and some on stilts, built around waterholes. Rifle hunters are, of course, also very welcome and enjoy the varied savanna bush and the good results from our fair chase hunting. There is good hunting all year round.

Cawston Camp, built on a rocky hillside, offers a delightful oasis of green lawns, shaded tents with en-suite bathrooms, a lovely swimming pool, deep thatched rooflines and a superb wooden deck overlooking a waterhole where game come to drink. Our daily rate is inclusive of excellent food and drinks and attentive service to make your stay a memorable one.

Our milk, cream and butter come from our own small dairy herd. We serve a variety of venison and can prepare cuts to your request. Around the camp and homestead live a resident herd of habituated mongooses and bushbuck. Watch them graze as you walk to your tent!

Non-hunters can take advantage of the proximity of Bulawayo to shop and for sightseeing there are the Matopos Hills as well as the Victoria Falls (4 hours away by road).

Zimbabwe itself provides a rare and lovely combination of wild places, spectacular and varied wildlife, natural wonders, many adventure activities, a functioning infrastructure and friendly people.
