First Class Trophy is represented in South Africa where we offer hunters our ALL INCLUSIVE concept. This concept gives the hunter the benefit of knowing the exact costs of taxidermy work and transport, before leaving his country.
Delivery of the finished trophy mounts are done directly to the hunter’s doorstep. The taxidermy process of your trophy can be monitored step by step on our “Track & Trace” system.
Delivery to hunters living in an EU-country
We offer our unique ALL INCLUSIVE package with delivery of the finished hunting trophies direct to the hunters doorstep in all EU-country. When the taxidermist work has been completed, we will dispatch the trophy mounts from our workshop directly to the hunter’s address. This could be either a home or business address of the hunter’s choice.
Delivery to hunters living outside the EU- countries
We cannot deliver trophies direct to the hunters doorstep of countries outside the EU (like Norway, Switzerland, USA, Canada, Mexico, UAE, etc.). In these cases we deliver the trophy mounts to a local incoming agent (broker) in that country. The broker will take care of the local customs, duties, veterinary certificates and the internal shipping in that country, to the hunter. These local costs in non-EU countries are not included in our ALL INCLUSIVE prices.

TRACK & TRACE. First Class Trophy has introduced what is probably the taxidermy industry’s first fully integrated web-based Order and Production Portal where our customers and partners can log in and check order information, follow the production of taxidermy orders, check how far an order is progressing, check the expected delivery date, check billing / deposit and balance payment, etc. Along with the ability to log in, you, as a customer, get an automatic email notification each time a work status changes in our production. For example, when the skin is tanned. We operate with 8-12 stages in a production process, depending on the type of taxidermy work. Once you become a registered in our IT system, you get an email with a username and login info. The Order and Production portal has been developed as part of our efforts to give our customers accurate and detailed information about the work we do. The portal is part of our IT system that enables us to implement efficient production with a minimum of time wastage, so that we can continue to supply high quality workmanship at competitive prices.
YOUR TROPHIES ARE INSURED. Your trophies will be insured from the moment our shipping partner collects them from the local ‘Dip & Pack’ partner, all the way until you receive them. Our insurance covers trophy fees, ‘Dip & Pack’, taxidermy work and transport. The costs of this insurance is only 1% of the amount insured.
FAST DELIVERY. Your trophy mounts will be completed and delivered within 8-12 months after your payment of 50% deposit. The delivery time can sometimes take 1-2 months extra, if we have to wait for export papers from the Namibian Nature Conservation.
DIRECT DELIVERY TO ANY ADDRESS IN EU- COUNTRIES. The trophy mounts will be sent directly from our workshop to the hunters doorstep. This can be either a home address or a business address.
DIRECT DELIVERY TO BROKER IF ADDRESS OUTSIDE EU- COUNTRIES. We cannot deliver trophies direct to the hunters doorstep of countries outside the EU (like Norwaw, Switzerland, USA, Canada, Mexico, Russia, UAE, etc. )In these cases we deliver the trophy mounts to a local incoming agent in that country. They will take care of the local customs, duties, veterinary certificates and the internal shipping in that country, to the hunter. These local costs in non-EU countries are not included in our ALL INCLUSIVE prices.
BALANCE OF PAYMENTS 2 WEEKS BEFORE DELIVERY. Your final 50% balance of payment will only be due 2 weeks before scheduled delivery of your trophies, not several months before which is the normal practice for most African taxidermists.
