Kampung Gombizau Honey Bee Farm 贡比绍村 養蜂場
Explore the Wonder of Sabah Malaysia
Kampung Gombizau is in Matunggong and about 2-hour drive from Kota Kinabalu City. When you head to Kudat town, you will see a brown signage “Gombizau Honey Bee Farm” at the roadside, about 40 KM before the town. Turn to that junction and you will reach Gombizau. Gombizau is a real village with a population of 260 and not an industrial area. A villager led us to a rubber plantation about 30 Meters behind the village, where the bee farm located. It’s great Destinationto visit in Kudat Sabah.
Gombizau Honey Bee Farm is located in Matunggong, a sub-district 43 kilometers south of Kudat town, where one of the economical activities for the village community is honey bee farming. There are over a hundred bee cages in the bee farm. Founded over ten years ago, this bee farm produces honey both for the consumption of the local people as well as to be sold in bottles for those who are akin to the sweet taste of raw honey. The honey collecting process is fascinating. The honeybees build their beehives in white boxes each with 7 frames within. The frames are slotted vertically and the bees build their honeycombs onto the frames. A small entrance at the side of the box allows worker bees to leave whenever. The rich, golden liquid was just too tempting but the crème was the honeycomb. The smooth texture with a tint of crystallized honey gave a fine edge that was just divine. For many generations, the people of Kampung Gombizau has been consuming raw honey as it is believed and has been proven to possess remedial properties; other than being able to lend its superior taste to food when used in cooking.
