During the summer season, “Les Compagnons des Prés ASBL” proposes an activity of walks and hikes with donkeys. This activity is aimed at all those who want to discover another facet of the region of Entre-Sambre-et-Meuse. We welcome families, nature lovers and hikers.
“The donkey is one of the best travelling companions man has ever found: strength, intelligence, willpower and humour are its main qualities. It is naturally sociable and takes care of what is entrusted to it (it is common for a pack donkey to stop when its cargo falls). Moreover, it is at ease on all grounds and its step encourages the observation of nature and the landscape. It is therefore the ideal companion for a walk in nature. “
4 circuits are proposed:
- 5 km
- 8.2 km
- 8.5 km
- and 19.8 km
which will take you through the 6 villages (Floreffe; Franière; Soye; Floriffoux; Sovimont and Buzet) of the Floreffe entity.

The Gembloux section “La Salamandre” was created on 14 June 2010 and is part of the “Cercle des Naturalistes de Belgique”. It was later renamed “La Salamandre Sambre-Orneau”.
Why “La Salamandre Sambre-Orneau”?
Salamander: Indeed, this amphibian, which has become rare in our regions, always arouses the interest and wonder of young and old alike. It is, in itself, the symbol of a beautiful and precious nature that must be preserved at all costs.
Sambre-Orneau: The town of Gembloux, located within the territory of the Maison du Tourisme Sambre-Orneau (Floreffe, Gembloux, Jemeppe-sur-Sambre, Sambreville and Sombreffe), is surrounded by plots of land dedicated to agriculture, and the region has many natural treasures to discover. Moreover, the activities of the “Salamandre Sambre-Orneau” are not limited to Gembloux but essentially cover the communes of the Entre-Sambre-Orneau.
What does it offer?
It is made up of dynamic nature guides and volunteers, driven by the desire to share their knowledge and their wonder for nature. It strives to raise public awareness of environmental protection through its regular activities such as
- Guided excursions
- Exhibition and information stands
- Presentations and theme evenings (biodiversity, amphibians, bats, pollinating insects,…)
You can find their activities throughout the year in the agenda on our website: www.sambre-orneau.be/agenda
