Le Royaume de Ganesha
The bath of the Holy Elephants
Again only a few steps separate you from an impressive structure when you see the colossal pool of the princesses of Pairi Daiza, (yes, we house 4 cows (3 Asian and 1 African)).
The pool is a tribute to the royal guard, 30m long, 20m wide and 10m high, with different levels of depth and entrusted to the watchful care of three goddesses.
Elephants are avid bathers and they use the pool up to 3 times a day during spring and summer as their huge, bare epidermis surface dries out easily in the hot sun. The surrounding terrace offers views of the mighty Mersus Emergo, the sleeping place of the elephants.
Again Ganesha watches over everyone's welfare, his effigy in the magnificently carved trunk is undeniable.

Since the start of the 2017 season, Pairi Daiza has had five magnificent orang-utans of the species native to the north of the large Indonesian island of Sumatra. The other species is native to Borneo and is less threatened than that of Sumatra, which is classified as critically endangered. It is estimated that there are only 7,300 individual orang-utans remaining in the wild and that 1,000 die every year, victims of poaching and the destruction of their forest habitat, which is mainly being replaced by vast oil palm plantations.
