Wellington | Part 2

SV_Butterfly World007

Here is the long overdue part 2 of my mini spring break in Wellington. This last two weeks have been a bit stressful in the day job department and slowly I have been coming up for air…

As part of my getaway, we visited Butterfly World, situated at the cross roads of the Paarl, Stellenbosch and Wellington Wine Routes. The name is slightly deceptive, because when we arrived we were surprised to find that it is actually a zoo for small animals, ranging from birds, spiders, fish, snakes and monkeys.

It was a completely exhilarating experience because most of the areas were interactive displays, where the animals- like the tropical parrots, marmoset monkeys, blue duikers, etc.- are allowed to roam free. Of course some animals, like the snakes and spiders were kept in either glass or cage displays, which I was very thankful for.
