Owner description: In the expansive grounds of a ruined Cistercian abbey north of Mons, the self-styled ‘zoo of the future’ is one of the most ambitious tourist projects in northern Europe. 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.

Pairi Daiza is one of my favourite place in Belgium. You can see many animals like giraffe or elephant and recently there are two pandas. The parc is more than a simple zoo, because you can travel between Africa or Asia with the differents edifices they have made. It is the perferct place to spend a day with your family.... More

Pairi Daiza is not a traditional zoo. It is more like a natural park. It is perhaps the best deal you can get when you think about keeping animals in captivity. The diversity of animals and the great design of the park, makes this place a really enjoyable experience. Not to miss the pandas, the giraffes (you can even touch... More

A nice playground. (Fast) Food was ok, price reasonable. Although I understand that the maintenance of the park must cost alot of money, still a... More
