Butterfly Jungles and Plant Shop

In the Butterfly Jungles experience, visitors are able to walk amongst stunning, free-flying butterflies from around the world in a rainforest environment full to the brim with beautiful exotic flowers.

All stages of the butterfly’s incredible life cycle can be observed at first hand including egg laying, fascinating caterpillars and incredible pupae from which visitors will be able to see the adult butterflies hatch and dry their wings. There are also feeding stations where visitors can observe fruit feeding species and a butterfly expert will also be on hand to answer questions and explain the fascinating process.
