Macbanana Butterfly Dome

The Macbanana butterfly dome offers visitors an opportunity to get up close and personal with these delicate insects while learning about their environment. The guides are friendly, well trained and very knowledgeable about the species of butterflies in the dome. If you’re lucky. you might see one emerging from a pupa.

There are a number of places you can start from,  depending on how long or far you wish to walk. Keep in mind that it is an “out and back” trail so you will be coming back along the same route.
