  • Become immersed in the vibrant world of pollinators as you explore the Safari Park's Butterfly Jungle. Once a year, this aviary transforms into a world of color. As butterflies fly around you, capture amazing photos—and experience wonder while discovering the important role butterflies play in nature.

    This 20-minute experience includes enrichment to offer the butterflies while you explore the habitat. Guides and wildlife care staff will be available inside the Hidden Jungle aviary to enhance guests' experience throughout their visit. A separate admission ticket or membership is required for Safari Park entry.

    Learn more about butterflies with this field guide. 

    Due to fire safety codes, we are limited to five carried infants (under the age of one) through the Butterfly Jungle experience at the same time. To ensure a spot for everyone in your party, please reserve and purchase a space for everyone, including infants under the age of one. Groups with infants under the age of one without a purchased ticket may be rescheduled to another time slot upon arrival.
