    Hello All, please provide me with companies you have used for your dip-n-pack. I will do the mounting in the US. The company my outfitter uses is the same one that did my 2010 safari and they took 15 months, this is unacceptable. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    I am from the area,(Zululand) in fact I have 2 Taxidermist within 10km of my lodge and I choose to send my stuff 7hr drive away for that very same reason, taking way too long to ship.My suggestion would be to stop looking for somebody around KZN, but it could just be me........

    Who then is the company and their contact info? Send by PM.

    I booked my hunt through a booking agent. I will discuss this with him too. Will have to see of I can get direct contact with outfitter before hand or I will have to wait till I am there to discuss directly with outfitter.

    Johannes of Ubombo Taxidermy was timely and professional with my work.
    I do not know if he does Dip and Pack only work.
    Drop him a line.

    I suggest calling Randy Mayes at Mayes Taxidermy in Stevens Point WI. Randy gave me great advice on dip pack and import for my 2009 RSA hunt. He does a lot of African mounts and knows the ropes.
