    Hi all, I am embarking on a South African plains game safari (my first) in three short months but I have not yet determined which dip and pack company to use.

    If anyone has utilized the services of Dippack.com or Trophy Solutions I would like to hear about your experiences. Especially about how close the air freight bill was to the quote. Thanks guys.

    I have never heard anything bad from dippack.com - Andreas Dhuring who is the owner.

    Dip-pack did a nice job with my stuff in '09. Everything arrived in good shape. There was some confusion at one point with getting everything shipped. My import broker, Fauna & Flora stepped in and straightened things out quickly. I highly recommend them.

    We used Trophy Solutions on an '09 hunt. The critters were shipped within the 99-day promise (by a few days). Our taxidermist said it was one of the better dip and pack jobs he'd ever seen and that the skulls were nearly ready for a European style mount right from the crate.
