“Well-maintained and very interesting”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

I didn't expect much from the Melaka Butterfly and Reptile Sanctuary but this was a true gem! The animals seem very well taken care of, the staff were knowledgeable about the animals and the entire compound was spotless (this includes the bathrooms too!). The only drawback was that we didn't get to take our photos with the animals because that was shut on a Sunday. A definite must visit!

“Very Small & Not Worth The Visit”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

The place was very small and variety of butterflies was extremely limited and basic. I would say most people would have seen all those species of butterflies before. It was so poorly managed that many butterflies were being stepped and died along the way.
