Africa is home to some of the most beautiful animals in the world; so it is no wonder many hunters have this destination on their bucket list. Take a trip to Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Tanzania, or Nambia to hunt the “Big Five”, that is the African lion, cape buffalo, leopard, elephant, or white rhino. These animals are some of the most coveted trophies in the world. So if you are lucky enough to take one of them, you’ll want to preserve it and show it off as a trophy in your african taxidermy collection.
GETTING YOUR AFRICAN TROPHY BACK TO THE UNITED STATES
You’ve invested lots of time and money into your African safari hunt; so one of your main goals is to bring something back with you. Right? Unfortunately, getting your trophy into the United States can be a little complicated without the help of a licensed agent like Wildlife Recapture.
First, your African trophy must come through the U.S.Fish and Wildlife Service. This requires the submission of tons of paperwork which means you’ll have to answer numerous questions about your hunt. A wrong answer could result in your not being allowed to bring your trophy home. Being experienced custom brokers, we can represent you to ensure the process goes smoothly from start to finish. Call Wildlife Recapture Taxidermy with any questions as we are a licensed import/export receiving agent.
AFRICAN TAXIDERMY MOUNTS
Let us turn your African trophy into a piece of art for your home, cabin or office. A large game like a cape buffalo or rhino is often preserved in a shoulder mount. However, a life-size mount is breathtaking if you have the space for it. To customize your african taxidermy, you can choose the position of the head and enhance the display with a recreated natural habitat. We can also turn your lion into a gorgeous rug or European skull. Of course, an elephant tusk is a popular option when it comes to preserving the memory of an elephant hunt safari.
Be sure to call us ahead to inform us of the dates of your hunting excursion. We will provide you with instructions for how to preserve your animal in the hot African climate.
Our team can also coordinate transportation for your hunt’s cape, skull or horn ahead of time for quick shipment.
