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

Walking with lions was excellent, something I probably won't do again in my life time. Handlers were very experienced and calm, making the whole experience great! As for the rest of the park it was nice but nothing out of the ordinary.

Although we thought it was pretty expensive, we would go again. The animals seemed to be well cared for and healthy. We were all adults, but the youngest among us loved the petting zoo. There were long waits for the safari buses, but maybe having more would disturb the animals too much. We loved it when the ostriches ran along... More

This is a word famous Nature Reserve/ Safari/ Zoo. There were plenty of activities available. You could simply treat it as a zoo & go around and see those animals, birds & big cats. You could also get in to a big safari truck & see those Big Cats, Rhinos, etc in their wild. But, if you fancy it, you... More

Lovely experience and close contact with the lions. We had Zimba ( 3 years old brown lion) and Julani ( 4 years old white lioness). The keepers are very experience and close to the lions. There was no fear at all for our group of friends. We were guided to pat the lions.

Apart from the walk with the lions (which you pay for separately and dearly), nothing in the park is really worth seeing (unless you've never been to a zoo and any zoo will be far superior anyway). Organisation and signposting is terrible, so good luck with trying to find things. People are not overly helpful either. The only safari thing... More

We (2 adults, 12 year old, 10 year old) spent one day at Casala and did the following: 4D Cinema - Pretty dated, didn't really interest me but the kids enjoyed it. Ziplines - Wow, just wow! Takes about 1 and a half hours from getting picked up by the bus to getting dropped off afterwards. For the price, you... More
