Situated in the heart of South Africa, we believe in sustainability and that nothing should go to waste. This belief is paramount to everything that we do at Hunters Heart Taxidermy, from the sustainable utilisation of natural resources to ensure that responsible hunting practices are followed.
The conservation of our wildlife resources, and of responsible hunting in our region is imperative to sustaining the legacy of our global hunting community. As a conservation-centred company, we endeavour to establish a total value chain in the community where the income generated from hunting practices, directly or indirectly, can be traced and measured. We therefore ensure that no part of an animal goes to waste: unutilised meat feeds the community and skins are transformed into unique bags and other sellable products by local entrepreneurs.

How it Started
Hunters Heart Taxidermy founder and CEO, Ruan Viljoen, is an avid hunter and conservationist with a passion for securing the sustainability of hunting in South Africa. Ruan has been a professional in the industry for many years, hunting his first African Buffalo at the young age of 13, and growing up admiring his father’s impressive collection of over 66 trophies.
It is because of this extensive background in the hunting industry that we appreciate and understand the significance of expressing each client’s memories with our custom craftsmanship, and why we focus so greatly on delivering a superb customer experience.
