Included in your South African Safari are all field preparations of trophies.
This includes skinning, capping, salting, tagging of hides, horns, tusks and skins and delivering to the local taxidermist.
We recommend that the mounting be done in South Africa as our taxidermists have the knowledge as well as the skills to do the best.
We do not have any financial interests either directly or indirectly in Taxidermy either in South Africa or Internationally.
We are however tasked with the processing of permits and documentation for the exportation of your trophies.
Trophies can be shipped from South Africa either raw or mounted. In the case of a raw shipment it will be sent to a taxidermist of your choice in your country of origin after being thoroughly treated by a South African taxidermist.
The regulations and procedures for exporting varies depending on the species hunted.
We have chosen Hunters and Collectors as our preferred Taxidermist for the mounting of trophies in South Africa. Their close proximity to our hunting concessions also ensures that our clients are able to take a tour of the operation should they wish to see the process for themselves.
