The purpose of this web site is to assist the development of beekeeping in Africa through sharing information appropriate to African beekeeping amongst those involved in beekeeping on the continent and beekeepers throughout the world.

We aim to share knowledge, ideas, create linkages and friendships. We believe that knowledge sharing is a two way process and that beekeepers in other parts of the world can also learn from the wealth of traditional African beekeeping knowledge. African bees (Apis mellifera scutellata and other African bee races) can be aggressive and require appropriate handling and management. Africanized bees (hybrids of A.m. scutellata which are essentially African bees) have spread from Brazil where 26 colonies of A. m. scutellata were imported in 1956 and are now expanding in the southern United States of America. Apis mellifera scutellata are native to the tropical savannah country of Eastern and Southern Africa (Rinderer 1986). This web site is dedicated to African bees and beekeeping..read more on African bees...
