Double harvest: Maasai women keep bees and get to conserve their environment

Published
At night the women on the Maasai Steppe are busy with their harvest.

One by one hives stored in the branches of the trees are lowered to the ground and the honeycomb carefully removed.

The hives are then again restored high up in the canopy.

The Steppe itself is massive stretching from the Usambara to the Great Rift Valley across the borders of Kenya to Ethiopia.

This bee keeping initiative is focussed in the area outside the Tarangire National Park in Tanzania.
