Butterfly staff were helpful and informative and most reptiles were visible. Scorpion and millipede enclosure was a concern as any child or....fool could stick their hand in and get stung. Insect museum was in a poor state.

We visited the butterfly and Reptile sanctuary last weekend and it was a delightful experience. They showed us the entire life cycle of a butterfly which was very educational and exciting for our 5 year old. Very well maintained and a must visit experience especially if you have little kids.

Very well oraganized and beautifully landscaped park.. Lot of trees and very well shaded to keep the sun out but still it could be humid during hot hours of the day. Butterfly section was filled with many types of butterflies.. My baby really enjoyed. Reptile section has a open section with snakes roaming freely. Small cafetaria with snacks and drinks... More

Such an attractive and beautiful scenery. However some places such as toilets were not clean and well maintained. For carrying babies are not encouraged to bring stroller because the roads are narrow and stepped from one place to another. Overall this is the perfect place to spend time with family while enjoying the beauty of God's creation.

Price is expensive for what's worth in terms of the experience. (Paid RM35 each as adult foreigner) Enclosures were kinda small and dirty for some of the reptiles. More staff effort can be done to ensure kids do not run and shout and also noticed kids reaching to the ponds trying to grab the koi-looking fishes out of the pond.... More

We would like to apologize and were equally disappointed to learn that your recent trip with us here was less than favourable. Your comments duly taken note for corrective actions.... More

Great place and worth the visit, I visited the place with my fiancé and it was worth it. Price at 22RM per adult, compared to Ostrich Farm at Port Dickson, this is definitely so much better. Animals are kept in clean enclosure and it was an enjoyable trip.
