Important Info

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON PERMITS:
Make sure that, if you wish to hunt a CITES listed species, you read the section titled CITES, under GENERAL INFO.
Make sure that, if you wish to hunt a TOPS listed species, you read the section titled TOPS, under GENERAL INFO.
Make sure that all the necessary documentation is signed.  This includes the PH Register and Hunting Permits (if applicable).
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON ADMINISTRATION:
It is of vital importance that we have your CORRECT PHYSICAL ADDRESS.  No PO Box-addresses or work addresses will be accepted as the receiving authority wants to check validity of names and addresses according to government data.
Make sure that your first and last names are spelled correctly on all documentation.  Please, no Bill instead of William… no Bob instead of Robert… Eddy instead of Edward, etc.  Your consignment might be seized as your government has record of William, and not Bill…
It is important to provide us with your shipping address ASAP as this information has to be noted when we apply for the export permits.  This might be your clearing agent, or taxidermist’s details.
You can send us this information just by clicking on CLIENT INFORMATION button on the top menu and complete the required information online.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR FIRST TIME HUNTERS:
Most of the times, we as service provider, find ourselves amid a “war-of-words” from first time hunters, complaining about “unknown procedures or charges”.  This is all due to a lack of information which was supposed to be supplied to the hunter, prior to his / her safari.  The following are costs that you can expect relating to your safari:
  • Taxidermy Fees: “Dip & Pack” or Taxidermy Fees,
    • Should you decide on Dip & Pack for your trophies (final processing at a taxidermy of choice in your home country) and your consignment includes any swine (warthog, bush pig, porcupine, etc.), your consignment must be shipped to a USDA-approved taxidermy,
  • Shipping Fees: The actual charge by the Shipping Agent / Freight Forwarding Company to get your trophies shipped to your home country (by air or by ocean). This will include carting from the taxidermy to their warehouse, clearance for export with government bodies, etc.  These charges are not included in the Taxidermy Fees,
  • Clearing Fees: A Broker on the receiving side will collect your trophy consignment from the airline (or ocean liner) and clear it through Customs, Agricultural Department and well as your respective Conservation Department. For clients from the USA, this will include US Customs, US Department of Agriculture and US Fish & Wildlife Services.  This process can be done personally, but the timing of the arrival of your consignment will have to be checked with the shipping company to collect the consignment ASAP from the airline.  Should you fail to collect the consignment on time, you’ll be liable for storage fees…  If you are not familiar with all the different processes, it can be quite a tricky process by clearing through all the different departments…  The best is to ask your taxidermist back home who he / she prefers to use, as they might have a standing relationship with a company that has been proved to work.  When deciding on a broker (clearing agent), make sure to get a broker that can clear your consignment as close as possible to your home or taxidermist.  If not, you might end up paying some serious cartage costs for delivery.  Make sure to get a broker that specializes or has adequate knowledge in the clearance of hunting trophies…
  • Delivery Fees (in home country): Delivery / cartage of your consignment to your preferred address in your home country is not included in our prices (or shipping fees) and will be available from the clearing agent / broker in your home country,
  • We are dealing with brokers from all over the world and will be more than willing to provide you with the names and addresses of brokers in your region. You will have to reach out to them as they will need a Power-of-Attorney from you to clear your consignment on your behalf,
  • If you are not sure about any possible charges – please contact us and we’ll assist you to the best of our knowledge!
