Shipping of items over to your destination usually takes about 2 weeks but in some rare cases
this may take up to 4 weeks. Animal products can take a little bit longer as permits need to be
gathered before sending the parcel out and getting the permits may take a little while. We are
confident that most products will be with their respective destinations within 14 days of the
order being processed.
For some items, we do ship by sea freight due to the size and weight and this does take a lot
longer. Depending on your country can take between 60-90 days.
We usually ship our items via EMS, DHL, Aramex couriers, or post office airfreight but will
accommodate clients should they want another delivery option. Our first option is to send it with
EMS and will send with them whenever we can, however, they do not allow certain items to be
sent with them such as spears as they deem that to be a weapon and prohibited on their
flights. Items such as that will be sent by post.
Each country has its own duties, Tax, and VAT charges when importing into their country, and
the amount that is duty-free varies from country to country. This fee will be calculated by
customs and then that charge will be payable before the items are released. In most cases for
items on our website, the import duties will fall under the allowed threshold so will not incur
any extra costs, however, we do advise clients to check out the costing with their local
customs should they be buying items of a high value.
Wherever we can we will try and get the items into your country duty and VAT free.
Return Policy/Damaged Item:
Once an order has been received by a customer, should the parcel that you ordered be
damaged, you may request for a replacement of that order to be resent to you. However for
this to occur we need to have the original parcel sent back to us or a photo of the proof of the
damage so that we can claim the insurance on a damaged parcel. All parcels are insured and
once the broken parcel or photo is received by us we will then get in contact with our insurance people to pay out for that item.
We do need all damaged claims to be reported to us within 5 days of receiving the damaged
parcel. If we do not receive information about the damage within that time we will not be
able to refund you. Only once insurance has paid out for the damaged item can we then resent
you a new item. All efforts will be made to get the parcel out to you without any damage and
if in the case of a replacement we will try our best to deal with the problem as fast as we can.
If you have placed an order on our secure server and we have not shipped the parcel yet, you
can cancel the order and we will reimburse your credit card. However, we will charge 9.5 % of
the total amount as a processing fee. This will be reflected when we reimburse your credit
