We have been there more than once, and the kids enjoy it every time. One thing I should mention is that every time we go, there are less butterflies. It is a disappointing because the butterflies were quite an attraction.

We live close by, go here often on a Sunday morning. Bought a year ticked, definitely worth it. The kids love to be this close to the animals and insects

If we could give them 6 out of 5 stars, we would. Wonderful experience, friendly staff. The lady hosting the reptile demos is a star. Entrance fees and food prices reasonable. Was one of our highlights on our 5 day visit to Cape Town.
