Thank you for the message.

Dip and Pack is turned around in 3 months from the date of full payment.

Trophies are then crated and dispatched to the export agents.

Taxidermy is turned around in 8-10 months from the date of 50% down payment and confirmation of mounting instructions.

We would be happy to offer you a cost comparison on Dip and Pack vs Taxidermy.

There is up to 30% saving after shipping when doing taxidermy in South Africa.

I have used @SPLITTING IMAGE TAXIDERMY for 12 safaris all over South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, and Mozambique. They always come through, usually sooner than promised. Their mounts are great as is their crating and shipping of trophies. If you ever have a chance it is a real treat to tour their facility in Port Elizabeth.

On your Yourtube channel, you show the horns getting "oiled" with something. There is always lots of talk about African taxidermy generally having these "shoe polish" horn finishes that don't seem to be a natural look. What is the purpose of this process in your shop?

It is late and Ishmael has been in the cups and I hate to be the one to deliver the bad news, but it is "spitting image," as in an allusion to someone who is so like someone else as to appear to have been spat from his mouth. Now I understand how "splitting image" might make sense to some as in "mirror image" or "split in two" but, unfortunately is incorrect. Dear Lord, please forgive me.

In tanning you “Split” a skin or “Split” the ears when you cape the skin.

It was a version of “Spitting” that was adapted to a Taxidermy brand. It is easily remembered as the phrase is well recognized

Services Flyer 2.jpg


TAXIDERMY​

Our experienced and gifted team of artist will ensure that your trophies are crafted in a way that honours your invaluable hunting memories. Focused attention to detail begins in the sculpting of the form and carries throughout the process until final touches are made in quality control.

From European (shield) mounts to full (life-size) mounts, the quality of our work is consistent throughout. If you are unsure about how to mount your animals, our service team will walk you through various options and suggestions. Should you have something unique in mind, our team would love to create a custom piece for you.

Taxidermy is an 8-10-month process*

TANNING​

Tanning is the chemical process of turning a raw skin which is susceptible to bacterial degradation into a stable, durable product that will not degrade over time. At our tannery, we offer tanning with hair on e.g. flatskins for rugs as well as tanning to leather of any colour, which can be used to create leather products.

Tanning of skins is a 6-month process*

DIP & TAN​

Should you wish to have your trophies mounted at a later stage or at home, Dip & Tan is a good option to consider. Skulls will be cleaned and bleached to export standard, while Capes or full capes, backskins, and flatskins will be dry tanned and prepared for export. Tanning in South Africa is affordable and is a great way to save money and get ahead while waiting for your Dip & Pack.

Benefits include:

  • Reduced weight of export
  • Timesaving once received by your taxidermist
  • Cost-saving on final taxidermy bill
  • Security in knowing skins are tanned before export to prevent any potential damage
  • We stock spare skins should there be an issue with your trophies – this can be solved prior to export
Dip & Tan is a 5-month process*

DIP & PACK​

Should you wish to have your taxidermy processed at home or at a later stage – we offer a Dip & Pack service. Once raw trophies are received at our facility, they need to be cleaned, prepared and dried. Dip & Pack is the sterilising process necessary to export any raw animal part across international borders. It is the removal of all flesh and tissue from skulls, horns and bones, and the drying and bleaching of skulls and bones. Skins are dried, cleaned, and treated with anti-bacterial powders to ensure that your trophy animal arrives in a dry, and pest-free condition. Our Dip & Pack facility is a veterinary-approved facility.

Dip & Pack is a 3-month process*

FIRST BUCK CLUB​

You’ve spent long hours in the bush, tracking your quarry, and after a skipped heartbeat you made the shot and landed your first trophy! Truly a moment to remember. At Splitting Image Taxidermy, we offer young hunters the opportunity to have their first hunting memory captured FOR FREE!

Am I eligible?​

  • I am under the age of 16
  • This is my first animal I have ever hunted
  • I have a photo of my trophy with me next to it
  • I am a South African citizen

Ts & Cs Apply:​

  • First Buck Club is for minors under the age of 16, who have hunted their first animal. A photograph of the minor with their hunted animal is required in order to qualify.
  • The minor qualifies for either a Shoulder Mount (Left, Right or Straight) or Shield Mount, free of charge. No First Buck Club Member qualifies for custom mounts.
  • Turnaround time for First Buck Club trophies is 4 months from the date of the client’s confirmation of mount specifics.
  • We do ask that the minor collects his/her mount in person, if from the Port Elizabeth area, as we require pictures of the handover of the mount with the minor.
  • For South African residents.

COLLECTION​

Once your hunting safari is complete, our Skull Squad will arrange for the collection of your trophies from your hunting outfitter. We offer countrywide trophy collection management and will ensure that your trophies are received safely and in good condition. Once your trophies and paperwork have been received by our team, our service department will make contact and begin discussing your order.

BONE DOCTOR​

The Bone Doctor is a unique service offered by Splitting Image Taxidermy where we apply our precision craftsmanship to create an anatomically correct skeletal reconstruction for your trophy room or museum display. Look through our library for some beautiful creations or get in touch to discuss your custom piece.

TROPHY MANAGEMENT​

Even before your hunt is over, Splitting Image Taxidermy is at work, ensuring your hunting memories are well-cared for.

From trophy tags to crating for export, Splitting Image Taxidermy provides a truly holistic trophy management service.

Our experienced team provides consistent communication so that you are kept informed every step of the process and our outfitter relationships enable us to fully understand your needs.

SHIPPING​

We believe that shipping should be simple, affordable, and efficient. During your taxidermy process, Splitting Image Taxidermy will apply for export permits on your behalf. We will inform you of any special permit requirements e.g. CITES and do whatever we can to assist you where import permits are required.

CONTACT US for more information on the above services.​
