Such an attractive and beautiful scenery. However some places such as toilets were not clean and well maintained. For carrying babies are not encouraged to bring stroller because the roads are narrow and stepped from one place to another. Overall this is the perfect place to spend time with family while enjoying the beauty of God's creation.

Price is expensive for what's worth in terms of the experience. (Paid RM35 each as adult foreigner) Enclosures were kinda small and dirty for some of the reptiles. More staff effort can be done to ensure kids do not run and shout and also noticed kids reaching to the ponds trying to grab the koi-looking fishes out of the pond.... More

Dear Sir / Madam, Thank you for visiting us at Malacca Butterfly & Reptile Sanctuary, the only conservation center breeding over 200,000 Malaysian butterflies yearly for the past 25 years. We would like to apologize and were equally disappointed to learn that your recent trip with us here was less than favourable. Your comments duly taken note for corrective actions.... More

Great place and worth the visit, I visited the place with my fiancé and it was worth it. Price at 22RM per adult, compared to Ostrich Farm at Port Dickson, this is definitely so much better. Animals are kept in clean enclosure and it was an enjoyable trip.

I visited the sanctuary on a Saturday and was surprised (and annoyed) by 2- 3 school group tour leaders using loud microphones in such a small enclosure. Not only they disturbed the animals with their noise, they disturbed other visitors too. I don't understand the need of using loud microphones in such small enclosure. A sanctuary is not a fun...

We happened to visit the sanctuary at my 7 year old's insistence as he was not keen on shopping and going through the other historical places of our interest. It took about 40 minutes by taxi from harbor where our cruise was docked to the sanctuary. We had assumed that this place will have only butterflies but were quite surprised... More
