Expensive for a not so great experience. And one of the ladies expect you to write a good review in a book. Who still writes and reads reviews in a book. It isn’t 1940. It is not worth R80 pp. Sad that Ramsgate is no longer more. Nothing really to do.

Not too sure what to tell you, the going rate is R80,00 per person, they will insist that you revisit the place when you have paid, when they know that most of the butterflies are sleeping.

During the presentation, the lady bad-mouths all of their competition, but in all honesty I would rather visit their competition (based next to the Ramsgate waffle house) where you are able to take your little one, save R50,00 per couple and see thousands of butterflies.

I was there for about 20 minutes and saw roughly 20 butterflies, had to look very hard on behalf of my 2 year old.

I guess that the purpose that they serve is of good intention, but as in life everything comes at a price, I just feel that it's not worth your time and money.

Luckily we missed the 50 minute video, that would have been difficult to watch, rather go home and put on some animal planet/ planet discovery, go and get a waffle, and be your own tour guide at the "bad competitors farm"

They differentiate themselves by stating they breed with the butterflies, not to sure if this is different from what happens via mother nature, pretty sure they are far from inseminating hundreds of eggs per year.

Also, they only have a handful of plants that allow the butterflies to lay their eggs, so where does the money go? surely not to the staff, they insist on additional sponsors from clients that already paid.

Anyway, I hope this review helped.

Take your R160.00 and maybe just buy your own plan, and get some butterflies at home.

I couldn't find a picture of my daughter playing with a butterfly, because they only have a handful.
