Taxidermy South Africa

Information relevant to the dipping, shipping and mounting of trophies in South Africa.

The interior of a taxidermist in South Africa.

We do not have any financial interests either directly or indirectly related to taxidermy, either in South Africa or internationally. We are, however, tasked with the permits and documentation for the exportation of your trophies. Trophies can be shipped from Southern 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 work closely with Capricorn Taxidermy for the mounting of trophies in South Africa and with Universal Trophy Services for raw preparation. Both websites contain price lists which are relevant to the specific service.
