    Liked the butterfly tropical walk, food portion was good and affordable, feels like a hot tropical jungle inside the butterfly exhibit hall. Good toilet facilities, ideally located close to the highway, a great tourist attraction. It creates life long memories.

    Disliked: 1. no provision for smoking customers (even though they have outside open air tables!), you have to go stand in the sun in the dusty parking area, 2. no undercover parking for cars, 3, ..snipped before I get into trouble...

I went towards it and at about two meters from it, it shot up and flew away in a peculiar manner like a wind blown leaf then dropped again as if a falling leaf. I saw it do the same action about four times as it flew away. Can anyone tell me what this butterfly is and tell me more about it. Early Spring time.. Sudwala cave area,...escarpment Mpumalanga Rep. South Africa.
