The park is essentially a conservation effort. It is designed to be like a walk in a riparian forest, so quite like how it is in a wildlife sanctuary (and unlike a zoo), sighting of butterflies is not guaranteed.
The best season for butterflies is between October to February. But do try and watch the butterfly evolve : From its Egg to Caterpillar to a Chrysalis and a butterfly emerge out from its cocoon on a sunny morning!
The butterflies are masters of their own flying in and out of the conservatory and will occasionally may land on you, please do not touch them as it may damage their wings.
We have modules for schools according to the age of the students. Please contact us for booking educational trips.
Breakfast with butterflies
A Sunday program inclusive of breakfast, a guided tour of the conservatory, a small trek up to the plateau. Batch size limited to 20 therefore prior registration required.
The Art of spotting Butterflies
Butterflies in good vegetation are difficult to spot. So during your visit, have patience and try and perfect the art of spotting butterflies while they are not flying around!
The couple who started it all. The park is the brainchild of Dr Jyoti Heblekar. A practicing Homeopath, she finds time to manage two children, three dogs, a few cats ( too nomadic to keep count ) and a few hundred of butterflies. Yashodan, her husband, adds to those logistics.
The design and layout ( or lack of it ) is credited to Yashodan, while keeping the place up and running is Jyoti’s headache .
Tanmaye and Shrusti, their children, are the Resident experts!
