It was a fascinating stay. Spectacular, if you wanted, quiet, if you wanted. It' up to you. Beautiful buildings, sorted by themes. Crass old exhibits: for example, a Siamese twin!

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 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.
