I can't recommend this experience enough... not only is the location magical - a vast, stunning property bordering Arusha National Park - but the educational journey you are taken on is mind-blowing. Get ready to zoom in to a whole micro world that you never knew about... it opened our eyes to a realm of fascination that could rival any safari game drive.

The passion with which Warren and Kathrin share their phenomenal wealth of knowledge is contagious, and makes this an adventure for young and old alike.

After discovering their project on Instagram, I have been dreaming to come to Arusha and visit Warren and Kathrin!
As a « stinging » honeybee keeper from Kenya, I wanted to extend my knowledge to stingless bee.

We came for World Bee Day and stayed in their wonderful Airbnb! Just the best to wake up with monkeys and go to bed with bush babies. There are birds everywhere and species that I have never seen or heard in Kenya. Their garden is also often visited by elephant as it border the National Park.

Beetopia has managed to create an environment for everyone to learn more about pollinators and especially stingless bees that live on the slopes of Mount Meru and Kilimanjaro.
Their work with the local community through training is very inspirational. This is a very sensitive part of pollinators protection through awareness and education.

It is a must stop if you are going to the National park. You will learn so much from this enthusiastic and passionate couple.

With or without kids, this is an experience not to be missed! Plus you can even take home some of their medicinal honey home. I learned this weekend, from Tanzanian scientists who tested and compared the medicinal properties of honeys, that stingless bee honey is as medicinal as Manuka honey!

NB: I also recommend their Airbnb house is decorated with taste and very comfortable. The attention to details is remarkable and I can say that I have never experienced this in any Airbnb before. It is my best Airbnb experience so far.
We had hot water each night made fire which was very nice. Beds and linens are good quality and we slept so well.
They get her cleaning products from Grounded in Kenya and everything is so eco-friendly. They had even prepared home made biscuit for us upon arrival.
Upon arrival, we had: nuts, fruits, fresh eggs, bread and dairy product from a nearby farm (fresh milk, butter and cheese) and honey!
Even the bathroom had body wash, oil, ear buds, washing powder… like I said really cosy and welcoming.

Did you know there are more than 10000 types of bees out there? See visit Beetopia at the border of Arusha National Park, 10 min from Momella Gate, and learn everything about bees and insects you didn't know you had no clue of before! Beetopia is situated in a wonderful peaceful and green environment, perfect for a day out of town, with or without kids, everyone can enjoy the bee tour and the tasting of the absolutely delicious honey. I can highly recommend Beetopia as an option for a day tour around Arusha and Arusha National Park!

We have recently visited this hidden treasure close to the Arusha National Park.
Tucked away just off the main road before the park entry - this stingless bee sanctuary is wonderful way to spend an afternoon. My daughter was fascinated to be able to approach them closely without the need of any protection. Such gentle creatures that produce delicious medicinal honey.

Kathrin and Warren - a couple in charge - are highly knowledgeable and engage with the community to safeguard bees. We received brilliant insights into stingless bees, their honey production, and the work scientists are doing on the ground.

We passed by Beetopia on our way into the National Park. But I would also recommend spending half a day and bringing lunch or breakfast for a picnic.

A phrase that stuck in my head: it is the little things that run our world: insects!

Highly recommended!

Do you know about Stingless Bees? Solitary Bees? No? I thought not... which is why you need to get yourselves to BEEtopia.

Your hosts, Kathrin and Warren and their team, are passionate about all things bee. I learned so much about these fascinating creatures which play such a huge role in our lives - pollinating our crops and producing delicious and health-giving honey. And I'm now the proud owner of my own stingless bee hive!

BEEtopia sits in a serene and beautiful setting, right on the edge of Arusha National Park, with stunning views towards Mount Meru. The icing on the cake: there is even a beautiful cottage, for those who want to stay longer and explore the surrounding area - perfect for a family outing!

A bee safari ! Why not? One of the most interesting safaris ever, learning about stingless bees , honey bees , enjoying their honey , and may be running across a curious elephant across the garden … Warren and Kathreen are the most wellcoming hosts.
The house they rent has everything you could need. Very clean nicely decorated makes one feel at home right away. We particulary enjoyed the fire place and the woods surronding the property. Kathreen makes sure the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need for preparing your meals, and organizes shopping with local products of your choice ahead of your arrival. It was perfect!

Beetopia is a must-see in Arusha, combining a peaceful spot on the edge of Arusha National Park with a fascinating eco-tourism centre on the diversity of stingless bees and their amazing honeys. I highly recommend the cosy cottage for a short or long stay, the perfect place to spot wildlife !

I want to tell you about an amazing experience that I highly recommend. The place is like magic, a big and beautiful area right next to Arusha National Park. But what makes it really special is the super interesting learning part. Imagine exploring a tiny world full of secrets and wonders you didn't know about – it's like finding a hidden treasure that's as exciting as a safari game drive.

The best part is the way Warren and Kathrin share their knowledge. They're so passionate and make the whole adventure awesome for everyone, no matter your age. I got to learn cool things about stingless bees and their biology, which was super interesting. And, guess what? Trying the honey they make was a delicious experience that added even more fun to the trip. This isn't just a regular journey; it's like discovering a whole new side of nature that leaves you amazed. I totally recommend it!

Fascinating to learn about all the different kinds of bees, their housing and the harvesting of the honey. We were able to taste some different kinds of honeys and see a way of harvesting. Can only recommend! The owners are really kind and have lots of knowledge and are happy to share it with you.
