Traditional Beekeeping,
Bees & Miombo Forest

A vast and untouched ecosystem, Africa’s Miombo forest.


Rich in biodiversity and buzzing with life, the Miombo Forest is home to thousands of plant

Species. Thriving in high, tropical temperatures, the trees produce a high intensity of compounds to prevent the fermentation of their nectar. Rich and biodiverse, this nectar is abundant in phytonutrients, anti-microbial properties, flavour and texture.


Highly organized, hard-working African honeybees browse on the abundance of this diverse habitat to produce one of the world’s most superlative, rich,pure, organic, raw honey.

Beekeeping is a traditional practice that dates back 500 years in north western Zambia.

Bark hives are kept in trees and spread out over large distances as far as 50 kilometers. These hives can last up to 20 years.


No antibiotics are used at any point in the beekeeping and honey harvesting process, and because the bees forage deep in the miombo forests – an area far removed from commercial agriculture – the resulting product is untouched by any pesticides.


These methods have been passed down from generation to generation among our beekeepers, and we are pleased to have learned from them and to work with them to continue this special tradition.
