About the Roan:

The Roan (Hippotragus equinus) is one of the largest of all antelope species. They have noticeable red nostrils, light beards and short manes.

They look similar to the Sable antelope but they are lighter than the Sable, being a dark brown instead of a black colour. They live in herds of up to 15 members and the male Roans often fight against the other males for dominance.

Roan Habitat:

The Roan antelope is mostly found in savannahs in east, west, south and central Africa. Woodland and grassland savannah are preferable to the Roan antelope.

They are grazers and feed on grasses and occasionally leaves and stems. They are water dependent and stay close to watering holes at all time.

Taxidermy (Hunting Roan):

Thorough preparation is the key factor to ensuring a high-quality final product. All hides are tanned and oiled using the world’s very best available chemicals and processes to ensure permanence and longevity.

Forms are selected to ensure the best fit and posture will be altered to suit you, the client’s preference without additional cost. Natural habitat bases are custom-made for full mount trophies without additional cost.

Only the finest materials and 30 years of professional experience are used in defining your trophies in a whole new way. The final trophies are almost Life-Formed. When the restoration is required, every effort is made to repair cuts and abrasions, and to minimise bullet damage. Natural scarring is kept unless otherwise requested.
