The Mersus Emergo


Close up with reptiles and amphibians

Have you ever had lunch on a boat? It's possible in Pairi Daiza. The Mersus Emergo is a former whaling ship which has dropped anchor in the oriental lagoon, in an attempt to gain forgiveness for its crimes: the slaughter of the great whales. On the ship, you can admire the reptiles and amphibians that are looked after by the non-profit association CARAPACE.

You can enjoy snacks such as Rosca bread, sandwiches and pasta cones on the ship. You can sit inside, or, if the weather permits, outside with a lovely view over our 'Jardin des Mondes'.
