Butterfly World Tropical Garden, one of the more unique attractions of the Western Cape Winelands, consists of a tropical garden in a 1000 m2 green house. This luxuriant paradise makes the free flying exotic butterflies feel right at home along with many other interesting animals who now call Butterfly World Tropical Garden their home.

The park is located at the cross roads of the Paarl, Stellenbosch and Wellington Wine Routes, near the small Boland town of Klapmuts. Just off the N1 at Exit 47, on the Route 44 (300m to the south), it is very accessible to the many tourists visiting the area.
Tropical butterflies are raised on breeding farms in countries such as Costa Rica, Philippines, Malaysia and China. Pupae are flown to display parks where the butterflies emerge into their tropical gardens.

What to see at Butterfly World Tropical Garden

Butterfly World Tropical Garden imports 300 butterfly pupae per week all year round. Butterflies are, apart from high temperature and humidity levels, also dependent on the amount of sunlight present. Some days which are overcast and cold may prevent the butterflies from being as active as on a sunny day. If you visit on such a day, spend your time investigating our other interesting animal displays (reptiles, tarantulas, birds, marmoset monkeys, meerkats and lots more)and see the resting butterflies close up, a privilege not always available when they are active on a hot day. 

The souvenir shop is packed full of interesting items and Cafe provides delicious light meals and refreshments.
