  • A large domain where there are several - but not too many - animals. They seem well-treated and seem to have room. Some of the park infrastructure was under construction during my visit, some other needed some heavy refreshment. However, the personnel is far from being polite: in the Panda cave, I barely had my camera out to snap a picture - without flash although it is very dark - that an employee yelled at us to "Take the picture and walk forward." That after more than an hour of line. At another place, we took refuge in the exit of the aquarium - it was raining quite hard - when an employee screamed at us for entering the "Exit." When someone told him we were just getting some shelter, he departed, cursing under his breath in French (too bad I heard what he said about "f... tourists") Some of the animals are in rather large enclosure: if you have a camera, something that goes up to 300mm or better 400mm will help. Otherwise, a good pair of binoculars is needed. Overall, that was a good walk among animals. However, don't fool yourself: that is a zoo and regardless how beautiful they are, the animals are caged.
  • Very nice zoo but the entrance price like 34€ (or 29,80€ if bought online) and 7€ parking is expensive. The all you can eat Asian restaurant (26€) also expensive and quality not that good. The architecture and different animals are great of course. Location also very far from cities.
  • What an amazing place! Pairi Daiza is so much more that a zoo. Make sure you get there as soon as it opens because it takes a whole day to see everything. The ticket fee is quite high, but it's definitely worth it.
  • Very nice animal park during Halloween (open until 9 pm). Many different species you can see very close. Generally speaking, the park is very clean and food is cheap. It is recommended to arrive early as in the afternoon the park gets very crowded. To see the panda we would have had to wait 90 minutes, which we did not do.
  • Too much activities, you can spend a whole day. It would be perfect to go during week, weekend it is too much crowded. Very nice place and worths to pay.
