Nestled in tropical garden, The Animal Sanctuary at Butterfly World features a large greenhouse filled with colorful, exotic butterflies. Additional areas include a spider room, a meerkat enclosure, and a reptile wing.

  • A great selection of birds, rodents, monkey and other animals to be seen. However when we visited Dec 2018 we very few species of butterfly. They also have very interesting snake, spider and skeleton displays. A on-site restaurant can provide refreshments. A small gift store is also available. A perfect stop if you have children.
  • A real home away from can come here to relax to your heart's content and view some wonderful species in as close to a natural environment as possible. The people here do amazing work! Edit: We previously made mention of an unsatisfactory restaurant experience here, which elicited the response below. It seems there is a new restaurant in place, and we had only experienced the previous one. Review amended to exclude food facilities...cannot wait to try the new place out!
