Atop the sugarcane fields on the west coast of the island, with the Rempart Mountain in the backdrop, lies Casela World of Adventures one of the major attractions in Mauritius. Casela probably has its name origin from "la case la", meaning house in local langauge. It opened its doors in December 1979, as a bird sanctuary. Casela, part of Medine group, a major conglomerate in Mauritius, was a vision that took shape and concretised beyond the expectations of those who, for the love of nature, refused to have those beautiful trees cut but had them integrated into the creation of a garden at that time. Spreading over a surface of 250 hectares, Casela World of Adventures has successfully established itself as the leading attraction of the island for both locals and tourists. The park with its rich fauna and flora is home to 1500 birds, giant tortoises, Bengal tigers, cheetahs, white lions, lynxes, servals, hyenas, dromedary camels, pygmy hippos, white rhinos, giraffe and many more species. A plethora of activities are proposed to visitors ranging from an African Safari to heart throbbing activities to unique encounters with big cats. It is also a unique place with the island's only dry toboggans and longest zip lines. The West part of the island is known to be the only place in the world where visitors can swim with dolphins in the morning and walk with the lions in the afternoon! The various amenities and activities recently introduced at the park are testimony of the innovative spirit driving the team. The Discovery Centre, a magnificent building at the entrance of park sets visitors in the mood as soon as they step out of their vehicle. The peculiar roofing at the entrance, along with imposing statues of animals, is a must-take photo spot! Massive pillars replicating giant baobabs and creepers on the ceiling add an adventurous touch to this building with the theming signed by the illustrious company which was hired for the world famous Games of Throne series. Fitted with the very first 4D cinema on the island, two movies are on display. A made-to-scale replica of the map of Mauritius in 3D of is also centrally placed so visitors can situate themselves. Several interactive buttons enable visitors to discover the island's leading landmarks in a fun way. New activitiesAt the giraffe platform, Casela proposes a unique opportunity of feeding the tallest mammals on earth. Visitors also have the chance to feed the colourful lorikeets with fruit nectar. These arboreal parrots characterized by their specialized brush-tipped tongues would feed from your hands and perch on your head. The African safari and its animals can be discovered by safari bus, quad or Segway. Recently visitors can discover the rugged terrains either on horseback or go the extra mile with our exclusive camel ride! Another innovation at the park is the memorable rhino interaction in their natural surroundings. As from December, Casela will also propose mud karting for the most adventurous ones. FiguresThe first development phase of Casela warranted a $10M investment, testimony of the scale of the development envisioned. Part of the Medine Master Plan development, Casela has got further developments in store. The 250 staffed-team is still growing and the park receives around 400,000 visitors yearly including locals and tourists. Seven days a week except for Christmas Day and New Year's Day

We booked tickets via our hotel as we wanted to experience Walking with Lions. We were offered a time slot of 3.30 pm which gave us time to head across the island from where we were staying. The cost of the experience was £215.00 for the 2 of us which included our entry to the animal park and the walk... More

This is nice to see if you have the time. It's a fairly expensive excursion but the interaction with the lions was an incredible experience! It's also nice to see that the lions are not mistreated. Apart from that, the Safari is fairly average though you do get to see some animals and the rest of the park is also... More

We had an absolutely brilliant time at Casela. There is just the right balance between animals, and adventure. We booked in for an interaction with the lion cubs, which was the experience of a lifetime. We also did the big cat drive through, which was fantastic and an absolute bargain. Our guide was informative, engaging and funny, and we spent... More

The wildlife park is exiting and full of animals. There was so much to see we couldn't get round it all! The big cat drive through was interesting, tigers and lions here. I also recommend the quad bike safari, taking you through typical safari scenes. Having a zebra walk right past you is cool.

It was quite quiet when we visited, no queues or waiting. The aviary was amazing, and while we don't like to see birds in cages, they were very large cages and the birds didn't seem distressed. Have never seen so many different birds which were new to us. The safari, which is a more truncated tour, was very good as... More

Walking with lions was a great experience and was better than expected. Both my wife and myself are not 100% sure about how the lions are taught not to see us as food and there does not appear to be any cruelty involved in this process. To be up close to such magnificent animals was thrilling and not once did... More
