Until a year ago it was known as ‘Parc Paradisio'. This extraordinary place is Wallonia’s second most popular tourist attraction. There are exotic animals, from monkeys and otters to giant tortoises and elephants. There’s a phenomenal array of birdlife, including the largest aviary in Europe with 300 species. « less

As a rule I'm not a big fan of attraction parks, but I do like a zoo. Pairi Daiza is a bit of both and I must say I was impressed. Think a big - abandonded - monastery , the tower still stands, and a huge garden surrounding it... Meet an elephant - literally- on your way to see the... More

A must in Belgium! Amazing experience, especially for those with kids. It's far away from the hustle bustle of the city, very relaxing, entertaining and educational.
