A must do in Mauritius....the walk with lions was an amazing experience, well organised and unforgettable. We also went on the segways which was brilliant fun. The whole park is beautifully maintained and all of the animals have plenty of space and seem very well cared for. Do not miss.

With everything in Mauritius being quite the schlep with all the windy roads, we weren't disappointed when we arrived at Casela to walk with lions but had a few concerns. Had we not reserved to walk with lions we would have been massively disappointed as it is no more than a glorified zoo, however the families and kids there seemed... More

After seeing this before we travelled to Mauritius it was one of our must do activities and we enjoyed every single minute!! Steven our guide was very informative and gave us lots of laughs along the way. The experience of a lifetime to be up close with them was well worth the cost. There are photographers all the way round... More

Great value for money for those who like beautiful scenery and a bit of adrenalin. You can chose the full day adventure package which kids and parents will love. The ziplines are well worth it and the restaurant will give you great food and fabulous view. Trust a local :)

Casela is widely advertised across the island for various nature attractions. Seeing as we love nature and were travelling with our almost 3 year old son, we decided to visit. Not the highlight of our trip. Firstly there is lots of construction on the go. Secondly their only tiger, and the only big cat that you could have seen as... More

When planning our visit to Mauritius, we saw that it was possible to have the chance to interact with lions and cheetahs, and made it a priority during our holiday. And i am so glad we did!!! It was an experience of a lifetime, to get so up close with these amazing animals, the guides were really great, giving you... More

I visited The Casela Nature and Leisure Park in 2008 and thought it was a nice day out seeing animals in a zoo situation, but nothing special. I think at that point they had just started 'Walking with Lions' and being an animal lover I was rather intrigued, but didn't go. I visit Mauritius frequently, as it is one of... More

Hello, Thank you for your concern about the well-being of our animals, but please rest assured that we are in no way involved in trophy hunting. Our older lions live in a huge enclosure here at the park, where our guests can still see them during a safari tour in a bus. We call this activity the Drive Thru. http://www.caselayemen.mu/drive-eng.php... More

Lovely Natural park in the west coast, layout as a small zoo with some birds, monkeys and tortoises. However the awesome bit are the extra activities you can arrange, the one we enjoyed was "walking with lions", an hour walking interacting with the kitties, and "cheetha experience" just for a 1-to-1 close affair petting the animals. Particularly enjoyed the walk,... More

Walking with lions was a great and memorable experience. Jim the guide was humorous and determined to put everyone at ease. We all had a turn at walking alongside the lions holding their tail, and patting them as we wandered in the woods together. Whilst in the woods the lions climbed trees, and behaved as nature intended. Money well spent... More
