Workshops «Petits Futés de la Nature»

This offer is only available in french.

In 2024, Pairi Daiza will be welcoming your children for “Petits Futés de la Nature” courses during all the school holidays. They’ll have the chance to enjoy a variety of landscapes depending on the season, and discover the 7,500 animals living in Europe’s most beautiful animal park.

Courses supervised by Pairi Daiza guides.


“Petits Futés de la Nature” courses are open to children aged 7 to 14. They are organised during all school holidays, from Monday to Friday, from 9am to 5pm.

Throughout the day, your children will be supervised by Pairi Daiza-trained guides.

Each guide supervises a group of 12 children, divided according to age, to ensure the quality of the activities and maximum interactivity.


This year, your Petits Futés can look forward to


– From wonder to discovery of the World in all its aspects: Lake Village, Ani Palace, the Healing Way, the Andalusian Garden, Oceania and much more.

– Learn about the projects of the Pairi Daiza Foundation and the rescues carried out by the Park’s CREAVES centre, to raise awareness of the need to respect animals and reintroduce them into their natural environment.

Unique experiences in Belgium, such as feeding an Asian elephant, crossing kangaroo territory or caring for the giant tortoises of Aldabra.

– It’s a great way to spend time with friends who will be sharing their exciting days together, and with whom they’ll make lifelong friendships.

New additions to the Enchanted Animal Kingdom, like the ninth world of Pairi Daiza: Japan.

Informations pratiques

The course fee is €225 for each child enrolled.

If you would like an invoice or if your child’s course is paid for by your employer, don’t forget to specify this on the registration form (under “any other comments”).

Enrolment for the course implies your child’s presence every day from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm.

For the smooth organisation of the course, departures before 5.00 p.m. are not permitted.

The course fee is a fixed price for 5 days. No reimbursement will be made in the event of absence during the course (even on presentation of a medical certificate), whether for one or more days.

Meals and childcare reserved and paid for will not be reimbursed under any circumstances.

Nursery care is available every day from 8am to 8.45am and from 5.15pm to 6pm. This service is supervised by one of our guides. The fee is 7 euros / day / child (in addition to the course price). This is an all-inclusive price and is not subject to any reduction or reimbursement, regardless of the duration of the child-minding service.

You can book a full hot lunch for 11 euros / child / day (in addition to the course price).

Here is the weekly menu for the 2024 season:*

Monday: Meatballs in tomato sauce / beans / rice
Tuesday: Vol-au-vent / chips
Wednesday: Sausage / duchesse potatoes / cauliflower gratin
Thursday: chicken breast / compote / mashed potatoes
Friday: pasta / Bolognese sauce / grated cheese

In winter, the dishes are served with soup. In summer, a vegetable starter accompanies the menu each day.

*We reserve the right to change the weekly menu according to the season, without prior notice.

Children taking a picnic lunch eat in the same area as children who have booked a hot meal!

Twice a day, the children have a snack (included in the price of the course). We offer everyone water and, depending on the day, a piece of fruit or a biscuit. Of course, children are free to bring their own snacks to suit their tastes.

Please note: please specify any food allergies your children may have on the registration form.

Please bring :

  • Rainwear (K-way style)
  • Comfortable footwear suited to the climate and walking conditions
  • A cap, hat or bonnet
  • A warm jacket
  • Sun cream

Please write your child’s name and surname on the inside of all clothing and footwear. Remember that most of the children’s activities take place outdoors, even when it’s raining!

Please note: we remind you that neither the Management nor the Pairi Daiza activity leaders are responsible for any personal items brought by children to the camp.

Any use of these objects (such as taking photographs) must be made with absolute respect for other participants, animals, other visitors, the course activities and the instructions given by the activity leaders.

Arrival and departure

Don’t hesitate to park in our car parks when you come to pick up or drop off your children: we’ll give you a ticket to open the barrier.

During seasonal events, depending on how busy Pairi Daiza is, you may be directed to car parks P4 and P5, located at a certain distance from the Park.

Course attendance certificates

A certificate of attendance will be sent to you by email once your child has completed the course.

Weeks with a public holiday?

The “Petits Futés de la Nature” courses take place every day of the week… even on public holidays!

No rest for nature lovers…


My daughter’s eyes sparkled every day. She loved the explanations and stories told by her guide. Being able to touch some of the animals was wonderful for her, as was access to certain areas that are off-limits to the public and the flight of the birds of prey. A unique experience with nothing to hide. I couldn’t list them all, it was so magical.



Every day, our son told us about his discoveries with such joy. He couldn’t wait to go to sleep so that the next day would come quickly.



My son hasn’t liked any of the leisure centres or holiday camps he’s been to. He loved the Pairi Daiza course, talks about it to everyone and wants to go back!



The best course of her life! Great entertainment, great stories and new discoveries in a park she already knows like the back of her hand.



He loved it, I’d never seen him so enthusiastic. The course confirmed his desire to become a soigneur one day. He’s found his vocation




If you have any questions, we can be contacted Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays) from 9am to 1.30pm and from 2.30pm to 5pm.

Raising awareness of Les Petits Futés

The “Petits Futés de la Nature” course is also based around the commitment of the Pairi Daiza Foundation. During the week, the children have the exceptional opportunity to visit a CREAVES (Centre de Revalidation des Espèces Animales Vivant à l’Etat Sauvage) and to take part in various awareness-raising activities linked to the Foundation’s projects.
