The zoo is also well known for their beautiful world gardens and buildings. In old Persian, Pairi Daiza means "closed garden", which is the oldest name for Paradise. It certainly lives up to this name.

You may need more than 1 day to discover the beauty of the park. That is why you can now choose for a unique overnight stay at Pairi Daiza. There are several options to choose from, all of them offering a fantastic view of the animals from your room.
