Meet the Cape Honeybee

The Western Cape Bee Industry Association is dedicated to supporting those who work with the Cape honeybee (Apis mellifera capensis), a very special honeybee which is indigenous to the fynbos biome of the Western Cape. Through our association, we promote ethical, professional and sustainable beekeeping.
