It is a way for Birding Ecotours to use their worldwide network and experience to put together tours for clients who prefer to be independent but need reliable guides, safe accommodation and other secure arrangements. So you can compare the different tours on offer, our normal range of scheduled tours can be viewed HERE, and customised ones HERE.
We are excited to offer this new service, not least because its a win win win! Firstly, you will get a less expensive tour yet knowing it will have good guides and accommodation etc. Secondly, we benefit from our commission. Thirdly local communities and the experienced and reliable local birding guides will be earning a living, which has been awfully hard for them during the pandemic.
We’ve heard some tales of dodgy operators refusing to sort out problems, of unreliable guides just not turning up or lacking knowledge and even hotels denying that accommodation has been booked! We are here to make sure that doesn’t ruin your trip. We bring to bear nearly twenty years of experience working with good hotels and lodges, expert guides and dependable drivers who can get you to see the birds you most want to.
For DIY tours with the anxiety and hassle taken out, please use these pages to decide on your destination and timing by looking at our destination pages and trip reports and then ask us HERE to put a trip together for you.
