Walking with lions is something you really need to feel yourself. Reading about it won't give you the thrill and the amazing feeling that we experienced there. DO IT!

This was the most amazing experience other than my wedding, its quite surreal to be so close to them and touch the lions. Words can not really express what an experience and privilege it is to go walking with them!

My wife and I visited the Casela Nature & Leisure Park to do the Walking with Lions tour on a recent trip to Mauritius. I must admit I had some reservations about going to Casela for a few reasons, mainly due to the fact that I thought they would have spaced out lions under sedation for the walk and I... More

Once in a lifetime opportunity to walk with two male lions (one was a rare white lion). The encounter is professionally run and we felt safe at all times. The lions looked healthy and you could tell that they were well looked after. The lions were allowed to go/do as they wished - they do not perform for you and... More

I cannot rate the Lion Walk highly enough, an amazing, once in a lifetime experience. The walk lasts an hour where you follow 2 lions as they explore and play. There is plenty of interaction, stoking, holding theirs tails & posing for photographs. A DVD & photos of the experience are also available at £20 & are lovely mementos. We... More

Stayed in Bel Ombre, so it was a couple of hours to get to the park to walk with the lions. It was worth the trip as this was well worth it. The lions are fully grown and are about 2 years old, if you're a bit nervous around animals then this may not be for you. The guides were... More

When we came to this park we did the zip lining (we did the hour long one but it would be worth it if you had the time to do the longer zip lining (4hrs) because of how much more you get to do ie: walk planks, tiny bridges, longer zip lines, etc) the Lion walk, and pet the Cheetahs.... More
