All about Butterfly Gear...


Butterfly Gear is Africa's first site dealing in butterfly (and moth!) related items.

It is a part-time business run by a small team of myself: Steve Woodhall and my wife Jayne. The idea is to start small and add product lines as the business grows.

Have a look at the product categories, and see what we have!
