Firstly, get there early if you have booked activities. The entrance arrangements are hopeless, far too slow and under staffed. It took us 20 mins just to get in. THIS NEEDS TO BE SORTED AS DO THE ATTITUDES OF THE STAFF WHO DIDNT SEEM TO CARE AT ALL) Be sure to study/choose your activities in advance to avoid disappointment and... More

This nature park offers you opportunities to walk and interact with lions and tigers, take a zipline tour over deep ravines, drive through the jungle observing big cats etc. You can easily spend several days here, but you have to be prepared to pay separately for each attraction. If you just pay the normal entrance fee you will see neither... More

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

Dear Visitor, We apologise for your unfortunate quad experience at Casela. Health and safety is our primary concern and this entails reducing the speed of the quad/buggy and going out in small groups. We still look forward to welcome you at the Casela World of Adventures with the upcoming new activities. Regards from Casela Park Team More

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

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
