Interactive sessions with school groups
Daily animal shows during the school holidays.
Restaurant options: Tea Garden inside the Zoo, De La Paix Family Restaurant next door

Walk into the lush tropical gardens at Butterfly World Zoo and be greeted by the sound of running water, birdsong and free flying butterflies, while taking care not to step on the green tree iguana lying on the path. Visitors soon realise that this is not only a butterfly park, but indeed a sanctuary for exotic animals, a bird sanctuary, a place where reptiles gets the highly specialised care they should and a whole lot more. This interactive animal attraction is the perfect family outing close to Cape Town. It is also ideal for educational school group outings, home schooler activities, photography opportunities, an outing during school holidays when we have our daily animal shows, etc.

All the creatures, bar the butterflies, have been donated by owners or environmental and conservation authorities.

Not being able to return to their natural habitat where they belong, the animals will live out their days here in our tropical garden providing the best possible environment for them.

Our message, therefore, is simple: Appreciate, Don’t keep.
