it's not just a trip to africa, but a trip to some very high, remote mountain areas.
if this is of interest to you, i'd suggest first watching "the monk and the honeybee" (a film about brother adam).
remember that bro adam and erik osterlund both had specific reasons for looking for the monticola bee (not just that it was "exotic" and "rare", it had to do with the elevation and climate of where they are found in relation to the elevation and climate of where they keep bees).
