Traditional Beekeeping in Kenya - From “Traditional Beekeeping Among Kenya Tribes, and Methods Proposed for Improvement and Modernization” Extracts

Kenya has many different altitude zones, each of which has a characteristic floral climax. In two zones at different altitudes (1200–1500m and 1500–1800m), where the climax vegetation still consists of indigenous species, traditional beekeeping is carried out. Particularly good honey crops in these zones are obtained from Labiatae and species of Acacia.
