For additional payment, we can organize your trophies’ delivery from your hunting camp to your home or to a taxidermist of your choice.

Usually, prices are inclusive of skinning and initial treatment of trophies – placing in salt and drying of skins, boiling and removing the bones from skulls.
Only in Namibia do they request additional payment for skinning, amounting to EUR 10-15 per trophy. It is a tradition to tip the camp skinner. We recommend that you do so – his work is essential for your trophies’ quality and whether your skins, skulls and horns arrive to you in good or poor condition.

Price is usually inclusive of delousing of trophies, export permits and packing. Import trophy permits required are inexpensive – it costs BGN 40 in Bulgaria to have a CITES issued by the Ministry of Environment and Waters. Transportation, however, costs. It is the responsibility of your hunt organizer and your PH to hand your trophies for shipment. Then, the person in charge of the shipment should keep in touch with you. This, usually, happens within 3 months from your hunt’s end. Afterwards, he must obtain all of the necessary permits, pack and ship the trophies to Europe and, afterwards, to you.

We recommend that you use the services provided by your speditor for veterinary-and-medical and custom release at the first European border. You will need to pay for the service, but it does render your life easier. Should you entrust it to us, we will take care of the issue of permits and we will be in charge of the correspondence regarding your trophies’ delivery to you. Price of shipment, however, is high.

This is due to two circumstances: firstly, the distance is great and thus the shipment is done by air cargo. It is possible to ship to some countries by sea, but marine humidity may damage the trophies’ skins. If your trophies do not include skins, you may easily ship by sea from Mozambique, Tanzania and the Republic of South Africa.

Secondly: trophies weigh a lot, especially skins. It is not uncommon to use huge Jumbo aircrafts for deliveries from Africa. They load the boxes with trophies in such aircrafts and afterwards, the same boxes cannot fit in the aircraft that must deliver them to Sofia, as it is much smaller. This calls for repacking of the trophies in smaller boxes or sending them by road. This costs money.
The boxes themselves weigh a lot, but this guarantees that your trophies will be delivered in a perfect condition. An exception is the shipment from Namibia as trophies are shipped in cardboard boxes.

It usually takes over 7-8 months after the safari to the have your trophies delivered to you. This is a standard period.
