can be fun. Some people do it for leisure and free honey and others do it professionally. Either way it's still a great way to get outdoors, meet people and get closer to nature. Our beekeeping course includes an estimated 90-120 minutes inspecting a live hive.

We recently hosted beginner beekeepers from as far afield as Botswana, Namibia, Kwa-Zulu Natal and Malawi keen to learn about keeping bees!

Get involved as a hobbyist or begin a road to commercial bee farming, either way you need to get more knowledge and hands on experience. It's like a test drive before you buy!

For a full breakdown of the beginner beekeeping course please see the bee course outline below. As a beekeeper in South Africa keeping bees is very exciting! You can do it too!

The full day beekeeping course includes a practical demonstration of working a bee hive as well as theory about beekeeping.

We provide directions to registered beginner beekeepers the week before the Beekeeping course takes place.

It will be for a FULL Day. Starting at 8h15 until late in the afternoon [estimated 17h00]. We will focus on as much hands-on theory as possible with at least an hour session of practical work at a hive.

The PRACTICAL BeeKeeping demo includes each learner removing a frame from a live bee hive and inspecting it. A search for the queen bee and description of comb, drone cells, larvae, eggs and internal workings of the hive. All learners participate in the practical exercise with a live bee hive.

We will be charging R950 for the course which includes the facilitation and tea and biscuits at the site. Please be sure you purchase necessary equipment such as a bee suit and gloves before coming on the workshop.

Or you can rent a bee suit and gloves for the day for an additional R100pp.

A minimum of 6 candidates is required to run the beekeeping course so be sure to bring a friend!
