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

We took our nephew on an outing to Pairi Daiza. We were very impressed. Beautiful park where you can walk arround for hours. Everywhere in the park you had a good view on the animals. 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

Good things are interaction with some of the animals and shows that you can participate in. Bats flying around you, lemur jumping from shoulder to shoulder. Prices inside the zoo for food and drinks are reasonable. Zoo is well marked also as a guide map for the zoo. Staff of the zoo is friendly, they speak English beside French and... More

This place is lovely! I loved the petting zoo at the beginning, the bats flying freely in the tower, and of course seeing the lemurs and having them sit on our shoulders! You can tell when you enter the park just by the gardens that this place is a lot of work, not even including the animals. the gardens were... More

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.

This zoo is no ordinary zoo. With an area covering 55 hectares you will need all day to explore it and even then you will not have seen everything there is to see. The place is beautifully landscaped with 8 areas of the world represented each with plenty of the right vegetation and animals as well as buildings that are... More

Located in the middle of nowhere, you ask yourself driving to Pairi Daiza if you're on the correct road. But when finally arriving at the park all doubts quickly fade away. The park is beautifully built, with room for animals, plants and visitors alike. Main attraction are the two giant panda's calling Pairi Daiza their home and it was a... More

I cannot say enough good things about this zoo. I have been to many European and stateside zoo's and this one is outstanding. Do not let the entrance price + parking scare you (103 euro on-line for 2 adults and 2 children 7 & 4) it was well worth it and we would of paid more. The integration of the... More
