Pairi Daiza, " The Garden of the World ", will take you on a journey from one continent to another and reveal to you all the treasures of the plants, animals as well as the cultural and spiritual world that have been given refuge in this estate which once was the home of the Cistercian monks of Cambron Abbey.
After just a few steps you will find yourself on another continent where you will discover almost 5.000 animals including the most emblematic species of our planet. You will cross paths with elephants on their daily jaunts, feed the giraffes, flatter lemurs, observe cheetahs, lions, sea lions and be flabbergasted by the colourful flight of the macaws.

These are just some of the treasures from the plant world preserved within the walls of Pairi Daiza.
