Butterfly World

Butterfly World
Nope, I'm not confused - this post is about Butterfly World and no, this isn't a photo of a butterfly. Before today, we'd last visited Butterfly World several years ago. They've expanded somewhat since then: not only do they have many species of butterflies, but now also have reptiles (like iguanas and snakes) as well as birds, monkeys, spiders and even a small Duiker.

If you decide to visit, prepare yourself for a very humid experience. They've tried to make the 1000-square-metre enclosure comfortable for the butterflies by keeping it warm and humid inside. Unfortunately this means that it's slightly uncomfortable for us humans.

All in all it was a fun albeit hot visit, and certainly worth an hour or so of your day if you're en route to the wine farms of Stellenbosch. :)
