Casela is a nice park to visit and it is amazing to do the Walk with the Lions and caress them. They are such impressive animals and it is an honor to be so close to them. They are doing more activities now and would be nice to try some out.

We did the Via Ferrata tour (approx. 65 EUR) in October 2014. As we booked the tour in advance via e-mail we were told to be at the park entry at 7:30. So we were there at this time - and we were the only one. Half an hour later the first staff members appeared and we were able to... More

The Casela park is a nice little zoo with a fair amount of birds and primates in the main zoo, You can pay an additional fee to walk with the lions, ride segways through another larger animal park, or enjoy the monutainside slide. Overall, a nice diversion, if only to see the large turtles up close and personal.

One of the main reasons for going to Mauritius was the walking with lions and we had booked this before we even flew to Mauritius. Casela is lovely and was even better than we had imagined! Loads of wildlife all over including all sorts of birds, giant tortoises as well as a few feline friends. The walking with lions was... More

Nice place with different kind of birds, animals like ostrich, tigers etc....are a part of this place...superb scenic views of large mountains make the place more exiting.... The biggest tourist attraction of this place is the 'walk with the lions' initiative.. Good place to both for family n couples also..

We paid a visit to the park and walked with the lions which was a once in a lifetime experience. Very impressed with the conservation work they are doing and there is so much work going on to make the park bigger and better. Many new animals coming such as Giraffe, more cheetahs to start a breeding programme etc but... More

This is something you MUST do when you visit Mauritius. We did the walk with lions and it was amazing(You have to make a reservation for the walk before that). Touching a real lion and walking next to it is so exciting and overwhelming. But the walk wouldn't be as amazing as it was if it wasn't for our guide... More
