Visitors to Bale Mountain Lodge can not only have the chance to see the National Park’s otherworldly scenery, Ethiopian wolves, mountain nyala and other wildlife, they can also visit the beekeepers of the Harenna Forest. Families have kept the ancient way of beekeeping alive for generations, shimmying up trees to smoke the hives (and lull the bees) so they may collect their sweet honey for use in tej (honey wine) or to sell in the market. Travel Ethiopia can arrange a visit as part of an Ethiopian adventure, and now that Ethiopian Airlines have announced new direct flights between Addis and Chicago (beginning June 9), it’s even easier to get there!
