Welcome to Busch Taxidermy

Taxidermy has been my passion and profession since 1990, when I started working at the South African Museum (SAM) in Cape Town.

The first thing I learned about taxidermy was the meaning of the word, derived from the Greek words, “taxis” - meaning order, arrangement or preparation and “derma” - meaning skin.

Since 1998 I have run my own small taxidermy business and I specialise in Skull Mounts, Shoulder Mounts, Birds and Fish.

Busch Taxidermy is a fully State veterinarian-approved and registered facility, complying with the standards set by our authorities and in accordance to all the required regulations. For exporting of trophies to destinations outside of South Africa, we can arrange all the necessary requirements for trophy delivery, packing, crating, documentation and shipping.

Taxidermy feeds my creativity and constantly challenges me to produce my best for the clients who commission my work. Since I have been practicing taxidermy I look at our natural environment through different eyes and I appreciate all of it's variety and beauty.

I invite you to look into my world.

André Busch
