Congrats. Now save yourself the heartache and frustration by calling Steve Turner, Travel With Guns. Used them 3 times going to Africa and they are top notch.

Save even more frustration and borrow a rifle when you get there. I've done this twice now and it's the only way to travel and hunt!!!

Be very careful with your taxidermy choices. It adds up surprisingly quickly.

Thanks all! TXhunter, Ka Maoto safaris. I can't find much online, but I have talked with Mike Jones quite a bit and seems like a good guy. Overall, pretty excited to go over there with them. Syncerus, for taxidermy I am looking at doing all euros with a couple flat skins. Based on the price list I got probably coming in around 1,100 taxidermy bill if I add a zebra.

Don't forget shipping and customs clearance fees.

Yeah I got those looked at as well. Looking at using coppersmith to clear customs, figured if I budget $500 for them and maybe 1100 for shipping. It would be 5 euro mounts and two flatskins at most. Have you been before? I am really just making slightly educated guesses on costs for that stuff.

I forgot to say congrats on the trip. Youíll have an unbelievable time. I bought my first trip at a DU auction and am headed back in April of next year.

I had 7 euroís and one flat skin shipping was about $600 by air and we cleared our own, it was very easy and cost about $55. If youíll do the research and fill out the paperwork correctly itís not as complicated most think. If you have any questions the staff at fish and wildlife and customs were very helpful, all the fish and wildlife forms can be done electronic. If you have any questions feel free to shoot me a pm and Iíll send you my number.
