    Hello,

    Could anyone pass on the name of a reliable tannery in Namibia please?
    I've been told a few horror stories about a few already.
    Dip and pack is not an option.
    Traveling in June this year.

    SIMPLY PUT...Don't have it tanned in Africa. That is the common consensus from US taxidermists.

    I see your from Australia and may need the stuff done a certain way I would tell you to send Ingwe taxidermy an email. They are doing work for me now but all mounts. I know they can get you on track with the tanning.

    I have been in the shop and seen there work first hand but first time I am having them do work for me but have been very happy so far. I have a post started in taxidermy section and you can see the work they are doing for me now.

    Thank you Billc, I'll do that.

    Yeah after tanning as dip n pak, attracts so many fee's once it hits OZ and currently only 1 quarantine depo here.. not a lot of choice for us here.
