Butterfly Jungle at the San Diego Safari Park is back!

It's become a Spring Break tradition in our house to visit the Butterfly Jungle at the San Diego Safari Park (yes, they changed the name a bit back from the San Diego Wild Animal Park).  The Butterfly Jungle has been an annual event at the San Diego Safari Park for several decades and people fly in from all over the country just to experience the over 30 species and thousands of butterflies.

We've all had interactions with butterflies, but I can guarantee you've never been so up close and personal with so many before in your life!

It is recommended that you wear bright and vibrant colored shirts.  We've certainly seen this as the best way to attract the butterflies.

It runs now through Sunday April 15th, 2012.  This year it's a bit different in that you pick up a ticket (no extra cost) that gives you a time window to enter the jungle.  The number of people in the exhibit is restricted to a certain amount to ensure it doesn't get too busy inside.

My youngest has a new nickname - the Butterfly Whisperer.  He wore a mustard yellow shirt and was a magnet for the butterflies this year.  At one point he had four butterflies on him at one time!  My other son wore an orange shirt and he had tons of butterflies land on him!

I must have spent the entire time snapping pictures.  The thousands of beautiful butterflies were breathtaking!

Be sure to head over to the Oasis Cafe after visiting for one of these amazing (and delicious) butterfly cupcakes.

So if you haven't planned out your spring break - be sure to add the Butterfly Jungle at the San Diego Safari Park to your calendar!  For more information about the San Diego Safari Park or the San Diego Zoo you can go here.
