“Great fo kids”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

We took a school group in April. It is very small but the guides are exremely passionate and knowledgable. Our students very much enjoyed the tour and being surrounded by butterlies. Well worth a stop if you have time.

“Good initiative, very educational!”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Good explanations by the local guide. ZBC is an example of educational sustainable ecotourism. Not only the tourists benefit, but also the local people, who are involved in finding the pupa's for the ZBC and the export to European butterfly centers. Make a visit to the ZBC on your way to Jozani Forest for example, it is easy to combine.

“Butterflies and Community Involvement!”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

Stopped in at the Butterfly Centre on our way back from Jozani forest. It was well worth the trip!! Not only it is educational and beautiful concerning the butterflies, but the Centre serves to improve and support the community. Locals helping locals - a wonderful initiative!! Colourful flowers and greenery make a beautiful backdrop to all of the beautifully coloured butterflies that you can get nice and up close with. Allows for fantastic pictures. Friendly staff made the visit even better!!!

“Lovely stopover”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

Very educational visit with butterflies. Well worth the stop on the way to or from Jozani. They'll take you throughout the process of how they train butterfly farmers in Zanzibar as a development project.

“A good short stop in addition to the Jazani Forest trip”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

The butterfly center was well organised, the guide enthusiastic and informative. All the stages of the butterflies were available to see and we allowed unlimited time in the enclosure. Local people cultivate the butterfly chrysalids which they can sell to the centre and the centre also exports them to the UK. This was enjoyable and a good cause.
