About Us

Matabeleland Taxidermist was established in 1991 by the late Donald Clive Reeve.

Don was born 1st April 1956, in Mazabuka, Zambia to a farming background. This is where his childhood passion for the outdoors and wildlife started. Don personally sculptured most manikins and this can been seen in all the many different lifelike styles of mounts. This tradition is carried on by Don’s family.

The precision work that is required for a trophy mount is done with great care by our well organized and talented staff, with the staff having well over 30 years’ experience. We cater not only for the trophy mounts, but also tan skins and do rug mounts. Our wide range of quality products has grown from shoulder and skull mounts, to full and pedestal mounts.

The office is run by Laura and Dawn who will deal with all correspondence between client / agent liaising with freight agents and ensuring the process goes as smoothly as possible.  Having been in the office for over 20 years.
