Hatta Honeybee Garden and Discovery Center was established in late 2018 under the stewardship of H.H. Engr. Salem Bin Sultan AlQasimi, a leading advocate for the preservation of honeybees and an active protagonist for promoting sustainable beekeeping in the UAE.

Surrounded by the towering Al-Hajar mountains and the mesmerizing native flora and fauna, Hatta Honeybee Garden and Discovery Center is the first specialized garden in the Middle East and North Africa that offers tours, workshops, and hands-on projects to help visitors discover the amazing world of honeybees. The bee sanctuary covers an area of 16,000 square meters and is home to hundreds of indigenous and exotic trees, such as Samar, Ghaf, and Sidr.

Since its inception, Hatta Honeybee Garden and Discovery Center has been at the forefront of educating thousands of visitors about the region’s rich history of beekeeping.
