We are not usually Theme Park people, but we went there as my husband wanted to visit the Siliso Fort. On the whole, we were very impressed with the organisation of the theme park island with its mono rail. I had particularly wanted to see the Butterfly and Insect Park, but I have to say, I was rather disappointed.
The entrance fee was 16 dollars each. We didn’t think this was very good value for what we saw. The area which enclosed the butterflies was relatively small. The species that we saw were very beautiful, but there were not that many butterflies in total. In the next enclosure we saw an iguana and a few birds. Then there was an exhibition area with tanks full of insects including two types of scorpions, some of them alive and some of them dead. These were followed by two large rooms of pinned displays, one with lots of huge stag beetles and the other with pinned butterflies.
I had thought that there would be far more live insects and there would be much more written information about them. I have been to other butterfly parks where this was the case. Even though we enjoyed other aspects of our day at the theme park, I left feeling rather unsatisfied with this part of the Theme Park.
