Sawadi, charming ecolodge in southern Morocco

The beehives

L'apis mellifera sahariensis

ruches This bee is different from its north neighbour, the Tell bee. This one is tougher (it is adapted to the desert temperature contrast), it is a better at gathering pollen since it can cross until 8km against 3km for the Tell bee. It is also softer which allows the beekeepers to work in the beehives without particular protection.

The Apis Mellifera Sahariensis bee is endangered. However, a association from Skoura in partnership with the government and the European Communitiy has decided to reintroduce the species in the palm grove. Sawadi was choosen to implant  beehives. The association set up the beehives in August and on September, we noticed that the bees were working well and were blossomed in our farm. We had the pleasur to taste the first harvested honey. We hope that the experience will continue in order to multiply the beehives in the Douar (name of the village where we are located in the palm grove). 

We aim at developing a apicultural activity to create new jobs.
