This "sanctuary" is really poor!!! The animlas which have to eke out a miserable existence there are to be pitied. Their cages are far too small, dirty, ungroomed, stink. My heart reaches out to all those miserable creatures imprisoned there!

The netted area had very few butterfly plants and when I asked the guide about it, he explained thats why they put feeders with honey for them to feed on. They should have anticipated the butterfly needs and provided adequate plants for forage. There were...More

I visited last year at the same time and wasn't that impressed as there didn't seem to be many butterflies at all (plus I wandered around by myself and didn't avail myself of the free guide). This year I came again with my mum and...More
