We walked into the tropics surrounded by birds snd butterflies. It was magical! So much to see and learn and photograph. Our cameras needed to acclimatize before the lenses would stop fogging up. The staff was exceptional with a shout out to Nicole for her professionalism in a variety of circumstances. Don’t leave without visiting the hissing cockroach display at the front desk! Two hours well spent, went by too quickly!

Good visit during week, not many people. Best to go slow and watch butterflies and birds as they move. Great photos.
Not that big but take your time we were there about 90 minutes. Staff very friendly and helpful, if u have kids ask staff questions, one brought out Madagascar cockroach. Good displays in other rooms worth looking at.
VERY WARM so dress appropriately, there is a self serve coat room.
Used a macro lens mostly if photography your interest. No tripods allowed.

I love butterflies and seeing them reminds me of my late Mother. My husband took me here on our anniversary and we absolutely loved it! Beautiful tropical feeling and amazing butterflies landed on me! Very friendly staff and COVID precautions are appreciated! Highly recommended!

Wow! Amazing place! We were warmly greeted by a front desk employee for our 2pm time slot. The facility promotes safe distance with sanitizing stations throughout. We were given the choice to visit the butterflies or insects first. Two rooms filled with living crickets, roaches, spiders, bees, frogs, etc. Both educational and entertaining. The butterflies, birds and plants were lovely. We felt transported to Costa Rica. Staff are friendly and approachable ready to educate and answer questions. Sitting on benches watching the butterflies flutter around was so peaceful. Some tickled us when they landed on our arms and head. We purchased wonderful souvenirs from the gift shop. Will try the cafe next time. Impressive property!

Entering into the garden was as if you were in a movie, a magical and tropical paradise...you hear water running birds chirping and because it was winter, you had summer vibes👌

There are hundreds of butterflies fluttering about you (or landing on you), exotic birds at your feet and cool exhibits to learn about all the creatures. The passion from the staff offering information, tours and helping you interact with the creatures is a definite plus. We learned so much and were amazed by the learning centres where you could see butterflies emerging from their cocoons or enjoying a tray of sweet treats. The critters were all well cared for and enjoying a beautiful habitat. We spent about an hour looking around and then we visited the lovely gift shop (something for everyone) and enjoyed a light lunch at the spacious cafe. Pleasantly surprised by the experience.

Filled with tropical plants with wheel chair accessibility around waterfalls and rock gardens. We viewed over a few dozen different butterflies fluttering around us within the hour. There’s also a cafe and gift shops available.

This has become a standard for our daughter & grandchildren on Family Day. The kids (and adults apparently) love watching the butterflies and birds flitter about among the plants & trees. Take your camera and have your kids wear something with a brightly coloured flower and there is a good chance a butterfly will land. There are lots of other things (insects / bugs etc) to see also and there is a small cafe there to satisfy most people.
