Using the Birdingpal resources you must agree to the following: If you contact a local Birdingpal and make arrangement to go birding, you should note it is common courtesy to make sure you show up for the appointment. If for any reason you are unable to do this, the least you must do is contacting the local Pal right away.
Please note that most Birdingpals are serious birdwatchers. It is a privilege to contact them, and your message should reflect it. A local Pal does not get paid, but should he/she offer to take you out birding, using their own vehicle, it would be courteous to pay for the fuel. A lunch and/or a small gift would also be appropriate, something as simple as a souvenir of your country, or a pin from your local birding club.
We want to hear about your experiences with Birdingpals.
Please contact us with any comments or suggestions you have.

I have lived in Botswana for over 20 years and have an excellent knowledge of the country and its birds. Around Gaborone there is a range of habitats, including acacia and broadleaved woodland, savanna, rocky hills, agricultural land and man-made dams. These habitats are easily accessible and support a wide range of bird species; more than 430 species have been recorded in the Gaborone area. Short-clawed Lark, a localised endemic restricted to southeastern Botswana and nearby areas of South Africa, is easily located on agricultural land near Gaborone.

I have completed my Associate Degree in Tourism Management and currently living in Jwaneng and am not working. I am willing to be a Birdingpal because like birds very much.
If you contact a professional Birdingpal guide you must be prepared to pay a fee for guiding services.
