Taxidermists & Trophy Transportation

Tinashe will see to it that our client’s trophies are skinned and prepared according to the correct methods. Tinashe will also obtain the necessary permits to convey the export of our client’s trophies and see to it that the trophies are delivered in good shape and order. Trophies can be forwarded to a taxidermist in South Africa for full taxidermy work, or exported in a raw prepared state to the client’s taxidermist in their home country.

Important information concerning taxidermy work:
Packaging only one client per crate. This is a new arrangement required by the USA.
Trophies must remain in South Africa for a minimum of 90 days before shipping.
Warthogs can cause a delay in shipping if the state Veterinarian of the area is not available to issue transport permits.

Please note that these taxidermy rates are quoted in USA dollars.
Shipping costs can only be finalized by the time trophies are dropped off.
Payment of a deposit to the taxidermist will ensure that your work goes on the production line.
No raw rodents may be exported.
Warthogs must be packed in a separate crate.
Raw and processed products cannot be shipped together.

It is important to choose a taxidermy that will create a realistic trophy so that your experience can last for years and you can enjoy your mounts like they were in the wild. We work closely with expert taxidermy for the mounting of trophies in South Africa and aboard.


South Africa is known for its great shopping and variety of African arts. Clients will spend the day browsing through African flea markets and experiencing true African culture while buying very well made African arts at good prices.


At Tinashe we are also able to make arrangements for your non-hunting, site seeing trips. A lot of clients like to see a bit more of Southern Africa while here, and we take care of the arrangements for you. Trips vary from 3-14 days, and most non-hunting partners enjoy a short trip while the guys are hunting. Recommend and popular trips are Cape Town (Wine Route), The Lost City (Sun City), Victoria Fall (Elephant back safaris and water sports) and Kruger Park. The trips are tailor made to your requests, and there are no hassles with big tourist groups, etc. Tinashe caters and tailor makes for every destination. Just contact the office for the recommended destinations and queries.


We offer our guests the opportunity to journey into a sensory and tactile experience that will leave you fresh, relaxed and revived. Tinashe Spa will pamper and spoil you with a variety of treatments.

Video & DVD Production

Having a safari professionally filmed is an extremely worthwhile supplement to the actual hunt. Considering the price of a safari, it’s an affordable service and well worth the price.
So when planning your next African adventure, consider the worthwhile service and ensure that your experience can be passed down to future generations.
Your film will be a complete adventure DVD that shows day by day activities, the hunting location and accommodation while you are on your safari.
There is no better way to remember your hunting adventure than recording it on DVD. Photographs and video give you the ability to relive the experience for many years to come.
