Take a tour of East
Africas biggest butterfly zoo, as you witness varying
species in every stage of their amazing life-cycle
within a fascinating tropical garden environment.
About 400-600 butterflies live in a richly vegetated
aviary, about 30 x 20 m tall. Inspect the tiny butterfly
eggs, touch and hold the hungry caterpillars and watch
them nibble away at the leaves. Admire the beauty of the
butterfly pupae before witnessing them open up to hatch.
This is a project initiative for a sustainable
environment; the butterflies are all native to Zanzibar.
ZBC works closely with the Jozani Chwaka Bay National
Park, Jozani Environmental Convervation Association (JECA)
and Pete Development Association (PDA). Zanzibar
Butterfly Centre is 4.3km from the centre of Jozani
Chwaka Bay National Park; the nearest airport is 21.6km
(Zanzibar International Airport).
