Butterflies for Africa has been developed to combine the best elements of top butterfly houses from around the world with some unique features of its own.
The complex currently houses a walk-through Butterfly House (housing both exotic and indigenous butterflies), Butterfly Craft Shop, Art Gallery, Coffee Bar, African Art and Craft Centre, Butterfly Nursery and a Butterfly Garden planted with a large range of butterfly foodplants.
The Prime attraction of Butterflies for Africa is the impressive walk through butterfly house where visitors are able to come into close contact with butterflies from around the world as they fly freely in an attractive, lush environment. It provides the perfect home for both international and indigenous butterflies and has already become a prime tourist attraction for the region, while serving as a valuable educational tool and vital conservation asset.
A walk through the tropical Butterfly House takes one into a fantasyland - where beautiful butterflies from across the world fly freely in a spectacular display of colour.
