Travel around the world
Pairi daiza started in 1994 as a bird park and has grown within the years into a huge zoo. Located in the Belgian province of Hainaut on the grounds of the old Cambron Abby (you’ll find many old buildings on the site). The first visitors discovered here mainly an ornithological garden on the abandoned site of the Domain of Cambron.
The 8 area’s of Prairi Daiza:
THE KINGDOM OF GANESHA
Just like Indonesia! In this magic area you’ll find the Temples and the places of the gods. Sacred architecture at the service of man and the deities they worship: Ganesha, Shiva, Brahma, Vishnu and Buddha. Lush vegetation and beautiful views of elephants & the stunning white tigers!
THE MIDDLE KINGDOM
In the heart of China! Amongst respect for tradition, ancestral customs and profound wisdom you’ll discover a fascinating civilization where the giant panda has stolen the show from the legendary dragon. Here, harmony reigns supreme and the enchanting gardens reflect a culture that has made beauty its hard-and-fast rule. Walk by amazing temples, enjoy the most beautiful trees & flowers and stare at the cutest panda bears you’ve ever seen!
THE LAND OF THE COLD
Remote regions, white ice floes & green tundra! We start to imagine that we are pioneers, gold diggers, trappers or intrepid reporters. Here in La Terre du Froid, you will meet walruses, polar bears and the magnificent Siberian tiger.
Sweet fragrances and peaceful gardens will bring you back to the past! Cambron-L’Abbaye, Pairi Daiza’s first World, eases you gently into your visit with some lovely surprises. The focus here is on learning while having fun. The cute petting zoo allows the smallest kids and their parents to get up close to the farmyard animals and other residents of this mini-paradise in the courtyard of the former farm of Cambron Abbey. We loved the old ‘French’style of the building and the amazing flowers in this area.
The World of Silence comes to the chateau! Air, water, earth. At Cambron-by-the-Sea, you can be a seabed explorer, an intrepid diver or a long-distance sailor. Embark on a strange and enchanting journey into the heart of a castle and uncover all its secrets. Amazing discoveries, incredible fish and stories of the deep that will delight young and old alike.
THE LAND OF ORIGINS
Africa: rhythms, shapes and colors! Here you’ll find big cats, majestic beasts and amazing primates. These amazing animals all have their territory. But brotherhood was established, in the shadow of the huts of a builder people, virtuoso’s in ethnic art. We have so much to learn from the Country of Origins!
THE SOUTHERN CAPE
Antipodean mystery and intrigue! From these distant lands, the cradle of the world, rise strange cries and melodies that are unlike anything heard elsewhere. The soil is red, populated by creatures that appear to be straight out of prehistoric times. Feast your eyes on wildlife and flora from Tasmania, New Zealand, Australia and New Guinea and let yourself be overwhelmed by its wild extravagance and beauty.
THE LAST FRONTIER
A sacred land surrounded by the grandeur of nature, a place where you can now sleep and dream! This is the newest area of the zoo. Indian totem poles carved with animal figures, brown bears, black bears, pumas, elk, wolves, beavers and sea lions…we are in British Columbia and southern Alaska. Unique hotel offers provide us with a wonderful experience in this New World, the Pacific coast of North America.
