Are you on a holiday or feel like taking a day off to enjoy the last summer days in Belgium? Join us for Pairi Daiza on Wednesday 31st of August. We will avoid the weekend crowds and catch excellent photos of the wild life presented at the park.
"Pairi Daiza offers an unforgettable day in paradise in the midst of wild animals. The park helps to sensitise visitors to the beauty and fragility of nature. Pairi Daiza houses more than 4,000 animals from around the world, including birds, mammals, fish and reptiles and it is located on the former site of the Cistercian Abbey of Cambron, featuring ancient trees and numerous historic buildings. Paradisio also participates with about thirty scientific programmes in the active conservation of endangered species we assume responsibility for their reproduction within the Park." - https://www.pairidaiza.eu/en
We will meet do car sharing, so feel free to ask or propose available seats below. The meeting spot at 9:30 am is Montgomery, near the White Night Nightshop, close to corner Tervurenlaan / direction Tervuren. Please, be on time.
It will take about an hour to reach Pairi Daiza. We will spend the day at the park and leave when everyone's content with their photos. The park is rather big and there are places for us to buy and enjoy lunch together.
Did I mention already, there is a little panda which is growing fast...
The entrance price for the park is 34 euros (or 29,80 euros if purchased online). The drivers may also ask compensation for the gas.
Let's photograph the WORLD of animals in Belgium!
