    Two years ago today, I took a great buffalo in Zim. hunting with Shingani Safaris.
    As of today, there is still no paperwork to make it exportable! I'm told by the
    taxidermist that she has been that trying for over a year to get Riaan to produce
    the documents needed and now it is pretty much hopeless. Not sure what to do
    at this point other then to just write it off.
    I saved for years to go on this hunt and it was a terrible experiance all the way
    around. My advice is to steer clear of Shingani Safaris and Riaan Vosloo. The
    man is a lier and a crook.

    The pictures and memories are what you have...many are going that rout these days with the added expense of dip & Pack and shipping and taxidermy work and shipping again. it cost almost as much as the safari sometimes...

    While a bummer look forward and not back...what was will never change...

    Question...have you tried to obtain paperwork through your outfitter?
