The butterfly farmRating:  5.0  (3 votes | 3 reviews)

At no.123 at Lelydorpweg in  the village Lelydorp there is the first butterfly nursery in Suriname. There are more than 20 different species of butterflies grown mainly for export to foreign butterfly gardens. We can see the whole process from egg to pupa to butterfly, during a tour done by enthousiastic workers .The possibility exists in the greenhouses to walk between fluttering hatched butterflies.  A visit to the butterfly farm is a getaway for the whole family.

    A true wonder to see how this wonderful process of egg to butterfly develops. And the intensity of this is so gigantic. Admirable ..... Very enthusiastic guides who show and tell on a nice casual way. The Panorama exhibition is a revelation. You just don't want to leave. Very worthwhile.

    I now have been three times with different friends and it is never boring. The young guides are well trained and know a lot. They accompany the visitors pleasantly. The exhibition at the end is also very worthwhile.
