I was recently on holiday on the beautiful island of mauritius in july. During my holiday me and my family visited the safari park. This was one of the highlights of my holiday. From the minute you walk into the park to the minute you leave you are in awe. You can see everything from love birds to turtles to... More

Had the chance to walk with 2 beautiful Lions in September 14. The whole experience can never be repeated and I would recommend anyone to seize the opportunity to interact with these beautiful animals while you can. Go and enjoy a walk of a lifetime.

I pre booked the walking with lions and cheetah interaction before we went to Mauritius. The Lion walk was amazing, it lasted about 45 minutes and we all got close and personal with both the lions, a African lion and white lion on our walk. It is well run and as safe as you can be next to a lion,... More

this was an experience I will never forget. just being around lions in their natural habitat and walking with them and petting them is something I've always wanted to experience. safety was excellent and the guide was amazing and very comforting.

We opted for the less popular cheetah out of concern for the treatment of the lions. We ended up being the only ones with the cheetahs as everyone went for the bigger cats. We therefore enjoyed a longer encounter with 2 cheetahs and 5 handlers who were extremely nice and cleared cared very much for the animals. One handler then... More

Casela is a nicely maintained Lion sanctuary and the staff is very professional. they make the experience pleasurable one for the guests. It is an whole day affair and one can easily spend about 4 hours. Also it is not very expensive and cost about 100 euro per person .

Admittedly, I was apprehensive when I booked this trip, as all I had for protection was a long stick! However, we were stood in a line with staff explaining the safety procedures, when two lions came walking towards us. I was at the end of the line and one lion walked directly at me, only stopping at my feet, looked... More

Casela is a place where I always loved since my childhood. Walk with the lions was one of my dream and now accomplished. Now, we got new wild friends. I'm surely visiting them very soon. It's a very relaxing and peaceful place. Guides are very friendly. So, see you soon in safari.

The walk with the lions is fantastic, the guides communicate well and add well to the proceedings. We did not feel at all in danger.
