Taxidermy Tips

The moment that your trophy is taken you create a memory that will last a lifetime. Some hunters are happy returning home from their safari with only photographs, others prefer just the bleached skull and horns of their animal. But we believe the majority of hunters want their trophy mounted in some way, such as a shoulder mount, pedestal mount or a full mount. Whether it be a photo, skull or any kind of mount, these will always be a reminder of that particular hunting moment. They will return you to the memory of that particular hunt as well as being a reminder of the surroundings, how blue the sky was, the smells carried in the breeze, the terrain and vegetation and sounds that were around you, including all of the emotions and thoughts that you had during that special moment in time.

Taxidermy of your trophies is considered an option portion and is not viewed as a must or in any way a part of the safari. However it is something to be carefully thought about, as it is possible for the cost of taxidermy to add up to as much or more than that of your safari.

Initial preservation of your trophies is done by African Cape Trophy Safaris prior to delivery to the Taxidermist. Upon arrival at the Taxidermist you will need to determine what you would like done to your trophy.

Regardless of what choices you make, the following costs will be involved:

The Taxidermist will tell you the costs for Dipping, Packing and any other taxidermy work that they will do for you. A deposit will be required for these services, however arrangements can be made to send this deposit to the taxidermist after your arrival home. They can also give you an estimate for the shipping charges, although the shipping company sets these charges and the exact amount won't be know until the size of your particular shipping crate is finished. Prior to your trophies being shipped to you, both the taxidermist and the final shipping company will be in contact with you for the necessary arrangements. Upon arrival in the country the Customs Broker will contact you for final delivery information.
