    I am currently using Swift Dip and have been pleased with their communication and prices so far.

    I have received dip pack skins for them, They are okay, reasonable fees and documentation fees. Skin tanned well and no real issues with them.

    Another for Swift Dip. They are a few hours away from JoBurg though...
    I have used them twice so far and quality, service and communication has been excellent. Both times my trophies have been ready right at the 90 day mark, as promised. Natasha Lotter has been nothing short of a pleasure to work with. She is ON IT!
    They have done a very good job on skulls for European mounts. NOT over boiled. This seems to be a chronic problem with many of the dip and pack outfits...
    Swift Dip also picks up from many outfitters. Not sure how many km they are willing to go for them though.

    Thank you all. I will look it to Swift Dip as well. We will be in the NW part of the Limpopo not far from them for the first 6 days of our hunt so they would be reasonable close.

    Have used 9 different dip & pack places in SA and Namibia and have been the most satisfied with Swift Dip, have used them twice now and will use them again this year.

    I've used Trphaendienste and one other and between the two they were the best, the other place's work was ok but their prices were a ripoff. Will try and look and see who they were, can't remember their name now, have old age memory! LOL
