Visiting bee farmers in Uganda Some of our clients/tourists ask us to give them the opportunity to visit bee farmers while on safari in Uganda because some tourists are interested in learning something about beekeeping and the honey industry in Uganda.
For example, while visiting different national parks in Uganda, clients can make a stopover at different Beekeeping Cooperatives and bee farmers in some of the tourist destinations visited in Uganda to see what the bee farmers and beekeeping project/cooperative does and learn a bit about beekeeping in Uganda while on a wildlife safari.
Different bee farmers and beekeeping projects are located along the way between different national parks and other tourist attractions and it makes an interesting community tourism stopover along the way for those who are interested to know and learning something about beekeeping in Uganda
Visiting bee farmers in Uganda gives a chance tourists to visit a beekeeping project/cooperative that produces honey and other bee products and also learn from different experienced bee farmers/beekeepers coming from different communities to share with you more about the benefits of bees and how to improve standards of living for beekeepers and their skills.
Tourists who take part in this community’s best tourism will be shown the beehives and learn about the process that bee farmers go through to produce honey bees, after going out in the villages visiting beekeepers, you will also get the opportunity to visit and have a look in the honey shops runs by different beekeeping projects where you could buy honey, beeswax candles, and other bee products.
For example, while you are in Bwindi forest impenetrable national park, and Mgahinga national park for gorilla tracking you can visit Kisoro honey producers and check beehives and the projects that make beehives to give out to the farmers which are empowering local people through beekeeping.
The Batwa are thought of as a ‘forest people and as such, a tropical forest is an environment in which visitors will expect to encounter them. The Batwa have been obliged to exist in a farmland setting totally alien to their traditional lifestyle and culture. This relocation is unsuited to beekeeping seeking to explore Batwa’s traditional forest-based culture and lifestyle.
Batwa beekeeping and tourism should be organized, scheduled, and should involve parity between Batwa and their visitors, allowing both groups to participate as equals.
The beekeeping and tourism experience should not be limited to traditional practices in the forest but should also make visitors aware of the Batwa’s current plight
