Lovely little afternoon out. Very warm in the room with the butterflies but I enjoyed it they are all very beautiful and the room they are in is beautifully landscaped. A few butterflies landed on us it was great.!

This place is outstanding, especially for the price. Our daughter loves it, there are so many different animals to see from the parrot in reception to the meerkats at the back.
