Your taxidermy is incredibly important. Many outfitters & even clients neglect to give the same amount of attention to the taxidermy & delivery of your trophies as they do to all other aspects of the Safari. This is not the case with JKO Safaris. We understand that ruined taxidermy work can spoil the best of Safaris.

Below are some of our most trusted taxidermy studios and service providers. We have worked with these companies extensively over the last couple of years & the reports from our clients have been only positive.
