WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE!
Victoria Butterfly Gardens offers your only opportunity to experience the warmth, beauty and romance of a tropical jungle without going to the tropics. Stroll through this indoor tropical wonderland, where Caribbean flamingos walk through the streams and ponds among the beautifully coloured koi, goldfish , Jack Dempseys, albino Oscars, tetras, barbs, jaguar cichlids, plecos, Australian whistling tree ducks and red-eared slider turtles.
In our climate controlled environment, (26 Celsius and 80% humidity), you will wander through lush jungles of plants native to tropical rainforest environments. Stroll along the trails past organic vanilla beans growing on the vine, papaya trees, pineapple, coffee beans, ginger and many other foods of the world growing in our organic soil.
Our jungle is also rich with its diversity of animals. The Jungle boasts, 6 varieties of poison dart frogs, 3 varieties of Geckos, tortoises, over 30 different varieties of tropical birds and that’s not all. We also have thousands upon thousands of free flying tropical butterflies.
We are located just 5 minutes from the “world famous” Butchart Gardens. This carefully planned combination of trees, bushes, vines and creepers is a balanced jungle-like eco-system that flourishes without the use of herbicides and pesticides.
Victoria Butterfly Gardens is the proud winner of the 2014 and 2013 Certificate of Excellence, awarded by Trip Advisor and Where Canada Magazine’s award for “Canada’s Best New or Improved Attraction” for 2012.
