The butterfly house has been designed to mimic the creatures’ natural habitat, so whatever the weather outdoors – by day the average temperature inside the dome is around 27 degrees Celsius.
Exotic trees and plants such as guava, mango, star fruit and coffee plants can also be found within the dome’s surroundings, giving visitors a real sense of the butterflies’ natural habitat.
