Overview
More
The International Stingless Bee Centre (ISBC) is a sanctuary for stingless bees and a place of environmental education and ecotourism. Many people do not know about stingless bees, especially African species, nor have many sampled their honey, pollen and propolis, delectable activities offered at the ISBC. In addition to beekeeping, the ISBC also serves as a station for international research.

We found this place by coincidence thru a road sign. The small stony road there should not keep you away. It is worth a visit. You get an informative tour around the property and the different bee hives for 20 Cedi, students 10. It is...More

A fascinating tour by a passionate guide who explained the work of the centre so well. A neatly kept compound not far from Kakum National Park. Well worth visiting!
