Why to visit Pairi Daiza ? Simply because it has been elected ‘Best zoo in Europe’! Besides, have you ever seen a Panda for real? Come as son as you can because there is a lot to see (500 species and 8.000 animals). OPENING HOURS...More

Definitely the worst zoo I have visited. Few animals, pathways are always full of people and no shade, too many noisy construction sites around. We had virtually no point in which we could say we are relaxed and we enjoy our time. The different zones...More

The zoo is very big and there’s lots to see. The hippos were absolutely amazing. Food was reasonably priced but it was a shame that most of the snack shacks were closed so it was difficult to grab a coffee or an ice cream. Only...More

THis is a huge lang and a very beautiful idea, but as all it is for profit. Some animals like the red panda, white tiger and other cats are in very small cage. And my worry is where do they stay after hours; There was...More

Safe atmosphere where your children can play and run from one animal to another one. Many shows and good food. A very nice zoo (and you don’t feel like being in a zoo) with plenty of “happy” animals : panda, bears, elephants, lions, gorillas, birds,...More

It is OK especially for kids, families, ... Their publicity says there are 7000 animals inside, I am not convinced they are actually their. It is nice to walk around, a bit confusing because the place is so big. If you want to see it...More

It is expensive, but Pairi Daiza is more than just a zoo. In addition to their international conservation efforts, the design and architecture of the grounds is amazing; the detail of all the structures and gardens is unmatched. There is no other place like it,...More

This is a modern day zoo. There are a good variety of animals from many parts of the world; many (all?) rescued from old fashioned zoos or circus’. These animals could never be returned to the wild. They appear to be well cared for. Whether...More

Zoo is huge, many places to visit. One problem is that the signage is really bad. Red pandas are somewhere, we found the place by sheer luck. Aquarium is okay. Prices of food and drinks are reasonable.

We bought an annual pass and enjoyed it in May through to October. May was much quieter but the weather wasn’t so good, obviously, it depends on whether you want to stroll around in sunshine or enjoy less crowds
