  • Absolutely loved this place. Its not very big however its stunning. The setting is perfect. The staff are very friendly and informative. The butterflies are numerous and stunning. Definitely worth a visit. The cafe overlooks a huge fish pond where you can feed them.
  • What a paradise. The first thing you see when entering the park is a beautiful little waterfall, and then it just gets better with the gardens and the butterflies. The species they have are amazing and are all local. You can get all explanations you want as there are guides happy to talk with you. Don't miss this place !
