By  | 

Butterfly Jungle 2017 is about to debut at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. From March 11th until April 23rd, thousands of butterflies will be exhibited at the Zoo for attendees to look at, play with, and learn about. This special exhibit is packed with fun for the whole family. Experience the bright colors of spring with these beautiful creatures who have been through quite the transformation.

Instagram Photo Contest

Bring your family along for a day in the jungle, and let your imagination help you create fun and interactive photos. Plan ahead and wear bright colors so that you are hidden with the flowers, and you might turn into a butterfly landing spot! Winners from the Instagram contest will receive a “Roar & Snore Safari” for two. Use #ButterflyJungle to be considered.

Roar & Snore Safari Night

Did you know that you could spend the night at the Zoo? With tent options and learning opportunities for kids and adults alike, participants who sign up for the Roar & Snore Safari get to learn from behind-the-scenes. Expect to engage in close ups with the critters, be led through an evening hike, a campfire activity, and breakfast the next morning. Get a closer look at what it’s like to live amongst the animals, and let the Zoo take on a whole new place in your heart.

Check the calendar for the Butterfly Jungle themed sleepovers, and make the most of this exhibit.

Kids Color Contest

Kids age 11 and under can submit a Butterfly Jungle coloring page to be entered into a weekly drawing. Prizes include a free plush and a T-shirt, and submissions can be made through the mail or in person. Print out a coloring sheet from their website and submit it by April 23rd for consideration. 

Win a Zipline Tour

Take a quiz about butterflies and you can win a Flightline Safari for two pass. Enjoy ziplining over San Diego Zoo Safari Park to see a birds-eye view of the animals from 130 feet above ground. All you have to do is take a short quiz to show all that you know about butterflies, and you will be automatically entered. 

Dine, Butterfly Style

Catch an exclusive viewing of the butterflies over a spring-inspired dinner menu on March 10th, or during a breakfast buffet on March 21st. Breakfast guests over 21 will receive a complimentary glass of champagne. Sounds like a celebration to me! Reserve your ticket here before they are all gone. 

We hope you are able to take advantage of the fullness of spring, with the return of Butterfly Jungle. Head to the Safari Park before the exhibit is over to experience the small, beautiful critters that are sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face.
