San Diego Butterfly Jungle Returns


Once a year, my family visits the San Diego Zoo Safari Park for their Butterfly Jungle. Every year, we are completely immersed by thousands of butterflies as we walk through a lush aviary. The butterflies land on our hands, our heads and fly all around us.

The Butterfly Jungle is returning to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park from March 16th to April 7th.

The 30 butterfly species highlighted this year hail from Africa, Asia and Central and South America and include the zebra longwing, orange-barred tiger and Grecian shoemaker. Old favorites such as the monarch, giant swallowtail and blue morpho also will be charming guests. Guests can enjoy the new Jungle Ropes Safari not far from Butterfly Jungle where they can climb, balance and swing like a monkey on a challenging new obstacle course.


When: March 16th to April 7th

Where: San Diego Zoo Safari Park

Extras: There will be butterfly-themed cupcakes and fudge featured in restaurants near Butterfly Jungle.

Cost: Butterfly Jungle is included with admission to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
