Do I need a Covid Safe Ticket?

As a result of the new corona measures, Smile Safari will work with a Covid Safe Ticket from 1/11. This means that you will have to present a CST  on arrival. The Covid Safe Ticket will be requested from all persons aged 16 and over.

Mouth masks are also mandatory.

How do I use the Visit Brussels pass?

You can request a Visit Brussels pass through the city of Brussels. This gives you a discount at many hotels, attractions and museums, including Smile Safari. The pass is still valid until 30/11/2021.

The discount is only valid at our cash register on site and therefore cannot be used online to make a reservation.

wander around for hours.

What does Smile Safari do for the environment?
You can waste your time but not our planet! When building Smile Safari, we
choose sustainable materials as much as possible.
We also work with Fair Circulair for the reuse of material. They want to
address the lack of recycling and use of sustainable materials within the
exhibition sector. That is why we like to offer our residual material at the end
of the exhibition to production labs, set builders, designers, artists, schools,
academies and stand builders.
We also offer free tap water, so be sure to bring your water bottle.
