We went on a quad bike experience. Certainly not what was advertised. We found the experience slow and boring for a so called "adrenalin adventure experience". Had to request a fasted guide as we landed up travelling at a snails pace. Surrounding wildlife not at all exciting and views nothing different or out of the ordinary. Very expensive for the... More

We were in flic en flac for some days, casela nature park is only a few minutes away. We booked in advance, safari and zip lines. We had fun and after the activities, we spent some time at the park watching various animals.

We loved the experience of walking with the lions. It was the first thing we have done when we arrived in Mauritius, straight from the airport! The park is ok, nice, but the most exciting are the felines. Very nice staff.

What an amazing day! We booked a Lion interaction as we felt the walk with the lions to be too expensive. We LOVED the interaction and being in their territory. We patted both white and brown lions. We were given lots of information and the staff were fabulous. We felt safe at all times even though there were 5 lions... More

A fantastic day at the park, walking with the lions was amazing, we also did the Segway Safari where you get up close and personal with the Zebra and Ostrich - great fun.

What a great experience, to be able to walk beside the lions,and to be able to stroke and pet them.The handlers were very informative and experienced, I felt very safe. Plenty of time given to take photos, also you can by a DVD with video and photo of your experience. I would highly recommend this once in a life time... More

We read about this attraction on trip advisor and booked through a travel agent in Flic en Flac. It is quite expensive, but well worth the money. To be allowed to go on the walk each person had to be taller than 150cm, luckily I just scraped in. I would have hated to miss out, but can understand the restriction... More

It was the most thrilling experience.We selected 1 hour zip line since we have a child below 8 years.My child enjoyed zip line a lot..Staffs are very cooperative and caring..the most memorable day..Highly recommended..Other than that we went for safari which is more excitable for children since they get a chance to meet Zebras and Ostrich in close.We didn't go...

My husband and I visited and loved it! They are currently building a cinema so there is a bit of building work at the front. We did not do the walk with lions as we were not organised enough to book in advance but on the day we booked the safari and the buggies which were both so much fun.... More

The title says it all! Darren, our guide, was warm, funny and knowledgeable, and the two lions we walked with were stunning and in a playful but well behaved mood. Our group was smaller than planned, which was to our advantage as it gave us more time to walk beside and stroke the lions. We also did the Lion Encounter... More
