Butterfly World

Butterfly World is a unique enclosed tropical garden housing free-flying exotic butterflies all year round. Open daily from 09h00 to 17h00.

Butterfly World Tropical Garden, one of the more unique attractions of the Western Cape Winelands, consists of a tropical garden in a 1000 m2 green house.

This luxuriant paradise makes the free-flying exotic butterflies feel right at home, along with many other interesting animals who now call Butterfly World their home.

Butterfly World imports 300 butterfly pupae per week all year round. Butterflies are, apart from high temperature and humidity levels, also dependent on the amount of sunlight present. Some days which are overcast and cold may prevent the butterflies from being as active as on a sunny day.

If you visit on such a day, spend your time investigating other interesting animal displays (reptiles, tarantulas, birds, marmoset monkeys, meerkats and lots more)and see the resting butterflies close up, a privilege not always available when they are active on a hot day.

Butterfly World now has
– a new Skeleton Park
– a new Edu-centre
– a new entrance hall
– a new picnic deli
a new tea garden
