We booked Casela as there was lots of activities and I wanted to feed giraffes. We booked quad biking ahead of time as the activities got booked quick. We loved it, we went off road on mountainous terrains and was able to get up close and touch emu, zebra and giant tortoises. I was disappointed with the park itself as... More

What a spectacular way to spend an afternoon. Walking with the big cats and a safari with the lions. There is plenty more to do in the Park and a great place to take your teenagers.

I've spent a wole day in Casela with my daughter aged 8. Some of the greatest attractions - walking with lions, photo session with big cats: lions or/and cheetas are unavailabe for her age and the petting farm was , unfortunately, under reconstruction and closed. Still we left Casela in the late afternoon, full of excitement and under big impression... More

We went to this park and had only a walk with lions booked. We really liked the walk and it was quite interesting. We could also see three tigers from afar. If you do not have any activities booked, you can walk around in the park, but the only thing you can see is birds, some turtles and some monkeys.... More

Nice park but no activities for children under 12 except walking. My kids went ziplining which was an amazing experience. My wife and I did the safari, but I was disappointed.

Not only you pay to enter, but you also have to pay a lot for every activity. Kids under 12 years old can't participate in many activities. Time is wasted walking to get to meeting places fore activities. Safari and other animals interaction paid packages are rip off. You really don't get a chance to touch or take photos with... More

One of the most amazing experiences of our lives. The park is very clean and well looked after. The staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the animals. The guys in the Lion enclosure knew so many facts about the individual lions. The have an amazing breeding programme too. And the food in the restaurant is top notch.

we enjoyed our visit to casela very much, had the walk with lions and the cheetah interaction, both were very good and I thought they were worth the extra money.Not something you get to do every day.

An early start at 7am and we arrived at Casela just after 8am. Second taxi in the car park. We were told to be at the departure point by 8.50 which we were and on the... More

If you love Lions, this is the trip for you. It is worth paying to do the walk with Lions rather than just looking at the lions from outside the area they are in. The trips do get booked up, so is advisable to book in advance, rather than just turn up as you may be disappointed. The handlers will... More
