Very disapointed. Place is very run down. Hosts does not know anything about butterblies except puppa's and dry wings. This is one of the places I noticed neglect over the years.

We had a wonderful time. The tickets are valid for 7 days, went two days in a row. Got to see some beautiful butterflies and even had one on my hand. Cute turtles, bunnies and wonderful cake. I will definately be going back :)

A nice experience. The staff were friendly. The video would have been great if it featured South African butterflies and not American. The establishment is in need of some maintenance.

You would expect a place like this to be a crowded on a Saturday but it was empty and no wonder why. They have limited parking and the place is dark, dingy and needs some serious maintenance.

It's extremely entertaining for the 7 yr old and 5 yr old. We watched a kiddies video on the life cycle of the butterfly. The breeding area was awesome. Hundreds of butterflies all over the cages....sitting on fruit. The staff were very helpful and informative. It does lack the tourist appeal in the look but makes up for it in... More
