Pairi Daiza is great for a day out with or without children, but probably best with! The animals have plenty of space and seem very content, but it's still relatively easy to get close enough to have a really good view of them - exciting for children and adults alike. The various gardens, pavilions, lakes and enclosures are beautifully and imaginatively laid out and very well kept. Even the rubbish bins are decorative! There are good play areas for children, lots of picnic tables and plenty of places to buy food and drink, but be prepared to queue on busy days. You need good shoes, certainly a full day and you probably still won't manage to see all the animals and birds.
The bird of prey show was good, but we waited for almost half an hour in a large crowd to get into the amphitheatre - some system of queuing might be fairer.
Leaving the car park at 6pm was not a pleasant experience - there were no attendants around to control the traffic, and the free-for-all resulted in the cars at the back of the car park taking about an hour to exit the car park (no joke with tired children in the car). Shame, because the rest of the day was perfect - a really excellent day out.
