Important Info

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).
It is of vital importance that we have your CORRECT PHYSICAL ADDRESS.  No PO Box-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.
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:
  • Airfare to and from South Africa (obviously),
  • Taxidermy Fees: “Dip & Pack” or Taxidermy Fees,
  • Shipping Fees: The actual charge by the Shipping Agent / Company to get your trophies shipped to your home country (by air or by ocean).  This will include carting from the taxidermy to the point of export, 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 trophies from the airline and clear it through Customs, Agricultural Department and well as your respective Conservation Department.  For clients from the USA, this will include US Customs, USDA 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 your shipping company in order to collect the consignment ASAP from the airline.  Should you fail to collect it quickly, you’ll be liable for storage fees…  The best is to ask your taxidermist back home who he / she prefers to use as they might have a standing relationship that has been proved to work.  When deciding on a broker, 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 of your consignment to the respective address.  Make sure to get a broker that specializes in the clearance of hunting trophies…  We are dealing with brokers all over the world and will be more than willing to provide you with the names and addresses of brokers in your region.
