Established in 1981, Life-Form Taxidermy is a world-renowned studio, with a large, dedicated staff, providing top quality taxidermy and outstanding service.

Our indigenous taxidermists specialize in African game and, coupled with their artistic talent and craftsmanship, this results in life-like recreations of game species. All manikins are custom made according to client’s specific requests at no additional charge and full mount prices include standard habitat bases.

Our highly skilled administrative team is up-to-date on all International Export/Import regulations and provides exceptional and responsive service from the arrival of trophies at our studio to the delivery of trophies at the client’s door.

Our dedication to walking that extra mile and striving towards consistent workmanship, ensures that our clients receive lasting memories of their African Safari as well as resulting in their valued return to us through the years.

We have a vast range of outfitters that are spread around South Africa and therefore send our vehicles on a regular basis to collect trophies countrywide, at no additional cost. If your preferred outfitter is not part of our route, we will gladly make the necessary arrangements to collect your prized trophies wherever they are.

We like to boast that Life-Form is a “One Stop Shop” to meet all your needs. Included in our operation, we have a Dip & Ship facility, as well as our own Tannery.
