We went for Walk with Lions, Quad Biking and Ziplines - which were superb. The guides/instructors for all activites are very friendly and fun-loving folks. For the lion-walk, they have a videographer and photographer, and you need to purchase the CD at the end of activity. Personal cameras are allowed. You get to touch and pat the lions, and also...

We knew before we travelled to Mauritius we wanted to walk with Lions and WOW what an experience. To walk alongside and touch the lions was such an experience and is something that will stay with us forever. All the team were fantastic, very informative and you could see the love they had for the lions - Jim was amazing... More

Its a highly commercialised park. Charges for some of the activities appear to be on higher side. But some attractions like Interaction with Lions, Segway are worth trying. Other attractions are Jungle Safari where u can see ostriches and zebras. Pre-booking is advised to avoid disappointment.

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.

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
