A recent trip to Butterfly world left us a little saddened. My son (20 months) had a blast, dashing around pointing at butterflies and birds and the little blue buck, but maybe the venue has tried to offer too much. Snakes and spiders appeared neglected, the large number of amputee lizards has no explanation, and the outside area at the back was not calling for us to linger longer. But it remains a good value outing

Butterfly World is a wonderful place to visit with children of any age. It is well kept, clean and full of surprising delights. A true gem and well worth a visit.
