Butterflies for Africa is a one-of-a-kind butterfly centre in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal. Within its sprawling 6000m² property, the centre boasts a walk-through butterfly house with a wide array of both indigenous and exotic butterflies, a butterfly-themed shop, an art gallery, and a beautiful butterfly garden and nursery.
The premier attraction of Butterflies for Africa is the walk-through (wheelchair accessible) Butterfly House where visitors can enjoy the patchwork of colour and come into close contact with over 100 different species of free flying butterflies from all over the world. Within the Butterfly House, you will also find the Monkey House with a family of cotton-top tamarin monkeys, as well as the green iguana and stick insect enclosures. Visitors can interact with the monkeys during guided tours on certain days at 11h30 and 13h30. Guides are available to assist you in the Butterfly House at no extra cost.
