“Don't support the cruelty”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

A butterfly garden should be a place of joy and impressive delicate insects. It should promote a natural habitat where insects flourish. Temperature, , Humidity and light are teamed with natural and authentic plants to create a micro Eco system.

Cameron highlands is where Butterflies go to die.

What a complete shambles.

The reptiles looked underweight and in the most unattractive state I have ever witnessed. There was nothing in this prison to motivate the animals to move.

My only regret was not taking any pictures. Then I would have something to put you off going.

The sooner this place goes bust the better.

If you do decide to go. just mind your step as a lot of the butterflies just sit on the path. Probably praying to be squished.

Shame on the owners, and anyone who works there.

“More than just butterflies!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

I've been to Penang's butterfly park so in comparison this is very disappointing. Luckily this place has other insects, spiders, chip munks, snakes, scorpions around that makes it interesting. Although their living compound looks crammed, you rarely get to see so many of the same species in 1 display. E.g. I love the cage of chameleons...there are so many of them and all "hidden" that we had a great time spotting them. It's also the cold weather that makes the snakes active and alive. The kids, all below 10 enjoyed seeing the fighting horn beetles and fighting scorpions. Overall, it's enjoyable.
We tried the steamboat dinner at the restaurant here. It was really good!

“Experience butterfly all over you!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

At first glance, you will think the butterflies perched on the plants are fake. Because these butterflies are huge. But once you took them and put it on your shirt or head, these butterflies are move. There are few places where you can see so much butterflies. But their butterflies are of one specie only.

They also have many different live animals on display too, you just need to have a sharp eye specially on the insects. Their insect museum can do more improvement to make it more attractive to tourist.

“tragic”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

Always tragic to see butterflies put into unnatural places like these. It is obvious the garden is underfunded and the staff really does not seem to care about the animals/insects in there. If cameron highlands was to be utilized correctly ONE step in the nature would have been enough and you would see all the animals you want in the free..

cameron highlands is just terrible =(

“Could have been better”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

Butterflies were kept in good conditions. However, All other reptiles were kept in small cages - very different from their environment in the surrounding forest. We didnt reliaze the place easily or the entrance (no sign for entrance what so ever and no people to guide). It could have been better arranged. Definitly the reptiles are not for children below 10
