1993: The zoo was opened in 1993 as a bird garden named Paradisio.

2009: The zoo opened the 4-hectare (9.9-acre) "Kingdom of Ganesha," an Indonesian themed garden.[8][9] It also changed its name to Pairi Daiza, which means "walled garden" or "orchard protected by walls", the oldest name for paradise.
