Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park,
Taman Botani Perdana,
Located within the serene Perdana Botanical Garden complex, the 80,000 sqft Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park is believed to be the largest butterfly park in the world, with over 120 species living within it.
Similar to the KL Bird Park, the Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park’s layout is based on a free-flying concept in a simulated rainforest environment that has been designed to be as natural as possible.
This unique concept enables the butterflies to freely and naturally breed and at the same time provides visitors with the opportunity to appreciate these wonderful gifts of nature in as natural a setting as possible.
The Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park is suitable for all ages and provides for an excellent place to bring your family for a truly unforgettable outing.
Escape the busy city life of Kuala Lumpur into this tropical park with beautiful landscapes consisting of flowers, fruit plants, and rare herbs – all crucial elements in the diet and pollination activities of the butterflies.
In fact, more than 15,000 plants from over 100 different species has been planted here, which is an amazing effort to imitate the butterflies’ natural habitat in the tropical rainforest.
Here, visitors will find beautiful ponds with backdrops consisting of lush verdure and colorful flowers that are home to ornamental carps and freshwater turtles.
Also prevalent throughout the park are feeding tables with treats for butterflies, consisting of pieces of pineapples, bananas or other fruit.
The park also houses several nursery and breeding areas where different species of butterflies are reared to ensure their survival. Here, visitors can learn about the butterfly’s life cycle and diet as well as how human activities in the past century have impacted their very existence.
Towards the exit is an entomological museum featuring a huge collection of butterflies and other insects from around the world, where one can expect to see exotic lizards, beetles, spiders, scorpions, and frogs in special display housings.
