With sun-bleached,...

Here, on the southern slopes of Bale Mountains National Park in south-east Ethiopia, hand-carved beehives are placed high in the tree canopies. Reaching them to retrieve the sweet, sticky nectar is arduous – and often dangerous. Local guide Ziyad and I followed beekeeper Said over a...
