Many of our clients choose to have their trophies mounted by the taxidermy division of J.P. Kleinhans Safaris. J.P. is himself a museum trained master taxidermist who personally oversees each mount from the skinning to the artistic completion of your mounted trophy.
J.P.’s finished work can be found in the homes of discriminating sportsmen worldwide. As an African outfitter, we have an intimate knowledge of all of the African species and our goal is to capture the excitement of the hunt and preserve it in a beautiful and permanent manner through the art of taxidermy. Our turn around time for taxidermy work runs between 7-9 months.
Extreme attention is given each trophy in the field upon harvest. Our skinners are masters of their craft and your trophy will be in expert hands from the harvest to the salt pit. All skins are thoroughly cleaned, dipped, salted, dried and folded into flat skins if the trophies are to be shipped unmounted to the U.S. All skulls will be boiled, bleached, and tagged prior to mounting or shipping.
J.P. Kleinhans Safaris handles all necessary South African export permits and paperwork. Mounted, or unmounted, your shipment will be expertly packed by our trained staff prior to shipment to the overseas port of entry.
The dip and pack fee is $50 U.S. per animal. If the trophies are mounted by J.P. Kleinhans Safaris, there will be NO CHARGE for the dip and pack process. We will also be happy to recommend the services of a stateside customs clearing agent to receive your trophies.
