Pretty ‘flutters’ at the eShowe Butterfly Dome – Best of Zululand

Pretty ‘flutters’ at the eShowe Butterfly Dome

When last have you spotted a butterfly?

These pretty little ‘flutterers’ are becoming more of a rarity these days, and that’s why a trip to the eShowe Butterfly Dome will be so worth it!

The dome is part of the Butterfly Route, the first of its kind in South Africa.

It’s located on the outskirts of eShowe in the historical Fort Nongqayi complex.

Here, you have the opportunity to get up close and personal with a variety of colourful indigenous butterfly species.

This butterfly haven is a lush environmental space where indigenous insect fauna are protected. Walk in and feel like you’ve been transported to different world!

In addition to the dome, there is an interpretation room, small indigenous nursery and breeding facilities.

Want to know more about these colourful winged attractions? The experts have a wealth of knowledge and you’ll enjoy having conversations with them.

It’s perfect for a family outing, and a stop at the Adam’s Outpost for a lunch afterwards will be the cherry on the top for this trip.

Bookings are required for guided tours. Contact them on 035 4749650.
