The last place you expect to find a rainforest is in the middle of Swansea, however that’s what you get at Plantasia!
This unique tropical haven of wonderful plants and animals offers a live learning experience about the importance of rainforests to the world’s eco-system. Step inside a basic tribal existence in the rainforest hut where you’ll see dried fish, seeds and other herbs all laid out by the fire pit ready to be used in cooking and hear the sounds of tribal singing in the distance.
Get up close to some amazing animals including chameleons, bearded dragons, pythons, parakeets, lorikeets, insects, spiders and lots more! The hothouse trail is an explosion of tropical plants from giant bamboo to grapefruit, which you can learn about from the numbered signs – you can also experience two different climate zones, arid and tropical, which can be a welcome escape from a cold winter's day!
Become a rainforest explorer and learn about how to protect our planet!
