What to Expect

This private tour is perfect for nature lovers! In the specially designed natural environment of a butterfly sanctuary you’ll find more than 4,000 butterflies flitting among the flowers and see entertaining monkeys playing in the botanical gardens. After hotel pickup by private vehicle, your guide will take you on a private tour of the Penang Butterfly Farm. Watch brilliantly colored butterflies float in the air as you wander through an enchanted garden that 120 species of regional and exotic tropical butterflies inhabit. You’ll find a living museum for preserved butterflies of the world at the hatchery, a leading center for research, breeding and education to help protect rare and endangered species. In addition, investigate a variety of creatures such as snakes, frogs, turtles and free-flying birds.   After your tour of the Butterfly Farm, your private guide will whisk you away to the foot of Penang Hill, site of the 75-acre (30-hectare) Penang Botanic Gardens—more popularly known as the Waterfall Gardens. The lush and undulating gardens, established in 1884, were transformed from an old granite quarry. Stroll through a rich collection of tropical flora, which supports many unique animals. You will be greeted by long-tailed macaques who make these gardens their kingdom. With help from your guide, you may also be able to spot dusky-leafed monkeys, known as spectacled langurs as they appear to be wearing spectacles!   Attractions you’ll see during your botanical tour include the magnificent rain tree, whose umbrella-shaped canopy and small pinkish-white flowers provide great shade. Admire the remarkable cannon ball tree, which bears large, globular fruits that attain the size of a human head and contain a mass of sour-smelling pulp. The candle tree is something not to miss with its 6-inch (17-cm) long fruits that resemble little green candles. Afterward, your guide will transport you by private vehicle back to your hotel.
