The Zanzibar Butterfly Centre
The Zanzibar Butterfly Centre is the largest butterfly enclosure in East Africa. Here you can walk among hundreds of free flying butterflies in ZBC's beautiful tropical garden. At any one time, visitors will be able to see many of Zanzibar's exotic butterfly species and witness, close up, every stage of their amazing life-cycle.
Zanzibar Butterfly Centre (ZBC) is a popular Zanzibar tourist attraction, especially for school age children and their families. Revenue generated by visitors provides funds for local projects in the form of alternative livelihoods (Butterfly farmers were previously engaged in deforestation activities) , conservation and poverty alleviation.
ZBC works closely in association with Jozani Chwaka Bay National Park, Jozani Environmental Conservation Association (JECA) and Pete Development Association (PDA).
