Rafter Beekeeping Tour
CLICK HERE for bee photos.
This tour provides the passionate beekeeper a unique opportunity and privilege--that of interacting with a traditional honey-hunter, to observe Giant Honeybees at eye-level, and to document the sustainable honey-harvesting of Apis dorsata colonies--should your timing be right.
You may also get an opportunity to taste and purchase samples of pure, multi-floral Cambodian wild honey, directly from local honey-hunters, on this, our Rafter Beekeeping Tour.
This seasonal tour is all about timing; so, should your timing be wrong, please don't hesitate to book one of our other tours. It would be our pleasure to introduce you to other aspects of this amazing country, and we would strongly recommend the Combo Tour as an alternative option.
No Temple Pass Required, but you'll want to bring a hat and wear clothes that will get dirty—long sleeves, loose trousers, and footwear that can be easily washed and dried. And, please don't forget your phone or camera!
Season: Nov-April. That said, much of the swamp has now been razed for agricultural use; so, with a dwindling bee population and fewer and fewer colonies migrating to the Rafter Beekeeping Community these days, this tour--where normally we not only observe and photograph bees on rafters, but harvest them sustainably, as well--has become much less of an option, and something that we can, unfortunately, no longer guarantee. By the way, this tour is definitely not recommended for young children.
Price: $70/adult. $35/ea for children ages 5-11; up to age 4, no charge.
