Taxidermy Africa is owned and run by John and Cathy Peacock and Jéane Grieve.
John and Cathy moved to the Eastern Cape in 1989 and started the taxidermy studio with Cathy’s father, Terence Coffin Grey, as our consultant.

Our long association with the game industry and personal hunting experience in Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa gives us a sound background for reproducing lifelike African trophies to world class standards.

Terence Coffin Grey, our consultant, is one of the pioneers and a doyen of the taxidermy industry in Southern Africa. He has more than 70 years experience in both commercial and museum taxidermy.
John, a student of Terence from an early age, has practiced taxidermy full time for over 25 years since the inception of Taxidermy Africa.

We offer a comprehensive taxidermy service, which includes the mounting of all mammals and reptiles to museum standard quality. Trophies are mounted to our client’s specifications. Every phase of work is an in-house operation carried out in our studio. We offer forms in polyurethane foam, designed and sculpted in our studio. We are constantly adding to our large range of mannikins and we specialize in custom mounts of museum quality.

We have a comprehensive collection service organised throughout South Africa. Contact us with the details of your Outfitter or Professional Hunter and we will ensure that your trophies are safely received on our premises.

We organize imports from anywhere in Africa.

John Peacock is a SCI Master Measurer and Jéane Grieve is an Official SCI Measurer.
