Very well run park , all the animals look well cared for and content. the walk with lions is a very genuine and amazing experience they just get on with their usual routine and dictate what happens and when.Only the confidence and professionalism of the keepers makes you feel safe. Steven was a great guide!

Amazing experience and the lions were truly awesome. We had a fantastic time walking with the lions. Felt we could have done with more time to visit rest of the attraction though....

This was an amazing experience with our guide Jim and 2 of the keepers. After our briefing we had a 40 minute walk in a group of about 12 of us with 2 of the young male lions. We were walking beside them, patting them and have the DVD to remember it all by.

I liked the nature side of Casela. Lots of spaces. But weather was hot. Too much humidity. There should be more elaborate board of places to visit. We missed the kangaroo and endemiques plants

A beautiful adventure park in Casela. We went for the Safari ride, interaction with Lions. However, there are many other activities to opt for such as the Segway, Walk with Lions, Petting farms, Quad biking. You can also opt for Mountain safari. Where there are additional activities such as Zip line, water canyoning.

SO having been to the Tiger Temple in Thailand who according to me seem a little doped up, I was not expecting much at this visit though was very excited to meet Lions close up. Must say, was totally surprised. The lions are really healthy and most importantly awake and alive and very active. The trainers there were really friendly,... More
