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 am a 35 year old graphic designer working freelance for a local Media House (Vacha Dezigns). A father of two and happily married to Beauty. I have done quite a number of projects for the Zimbabwe Tourism Board and looking forward to working with outside people, like, yourself, in facilitating enjoyable travels. I am an African man with strong interests in the synergy between humans and their environment. As much as I might appreciate being paid for my services, I am not religiously stuck on being paid for any good gesture that I might be called upon to give off.
If you contact a professional Birdingpal guide you must be prepared to pay a fee for guiding services.
