Petits futés – Pairi Daiza
“Nature’s clever kids”

Learn while having fun in Pairi Daiza

Pairi Daiza arranges its “NATURE’S CLEVER KIDS” courses for children aged from 7 to 14 years. These courses, overseen by supervisor-guides, aim to make the children more aware of the wonders of nature and to get them genuinely involved in the protection of their environment.

These are daytime courses from Monday to Friday from 09:00 in the morning until 17:00, during certain school holiday periods (Easter and summer).

The team welcoming your children consists of supervisor-guides who are attached to and trained in Pairi Daiza. Each guide supervises a group of twelve children. The groups hosted on a weekly basis are divided up on the basis of the age of the children in order to ensure the quality of the entertainment and maximum interaction.

All activities take place within the grounds of Pairi Daiza. The activities, which are very rewarding, are based on numerous practical experiences: discovery of large mammals, visiting the reptiles with the non-profit organisation Carapace, feeding the lemurs, cleaning and caring for the giant tortoises, observing and feeding the bats, etc.

Of course the organised activities depend on the age of the children and therefore of the group to which they are assigned, as well as...on the good will of our friends with fur, feathers or scales

Children get a snack twice a day (included in the price of the course). We provide water for everyone and, depending on the day, a piece of fruit or a biscuit. Of course, children are quite at liberty to bring their own snacks if they so wish. Important: if your child has any food allergies please indicate this on the registration form.

Clothing recommendations

Important! Please provide :

  • waterproof clothing (K-way style)
  • comfortable shoes suitable for the climate and for walking
  • a cap or a hat

We kindly ask that you write your child's surname and first name inside all of the clothes and shoes. Remember that the children's activities mostly take place outdoors even when it's raining!

Personal items and personal property

Please note: we wish to remind you that neither the Management nor the supervisors of Pairi Daiza are responsible for the personal items brought to the course location by the children. Any possible use of these items (such as taking photos) must be done with complete regard and respect for the other participants, the animals, other visitors, the course activities and the instructions given by the supervisors.

Arrival and departure

On Mondays we kindly ask that you be present from 08:30 for the few administrative formalities: insurance documentation and authorisation for emergency medical intervention.

Please feel free to park your car in the car park when you come to bring or collect your children: we give you a ticket for the car park (to activate opening the barrier).

Course certificates of attendance

A certificate of participation in the course will be given to you on Friday, early in the day.

Don’t forget to ask for it from the supervisor-guides! Please note that we will only issue one original copy!
