“Very engaging guide, yum food at MacBanana's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

Accidentally bought tickets to the butterflies so went for a laugh. Totally engaging guide who obviously LOVES his butterflies. Great service at Mac Banana's which is part of the same setup. Giant pancakes with beautiful stewed apple and cinnamon. Very kid friendly- animal petting farm. Rey well maintained grounds. Quite commercial.

We can also recommend "Mac Banana" close to the butterfly farm where you can get delicious meals, pancaces and more.

“Waste of money”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

Give this place a miss. If you expect to experience a butterfly world like the one in Cape Town you will be very dissapointed! It was a joke to charge people to sit and watch a video presentation on butterflies.

“What butterfly?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

Very poor! Not catching to the eye and the entrance to the place makes you feel like turning around. Not as good as described in the Southern Explorer... Not at all!

“Not worth it”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013 via mobile

Went there during Dec with kids and didn't feel it is worth the drive not entrance fee. The variety compared to other butterfly farms is small, craft shop stocks Chinese items similar to cheap flea market.
