When you think of beautiful, tropical Mauritius, it usually isn’t lions, rhinos, or giraffes that immediately spring to mind. At Casela World of Adventures, however, visitors will enter a safari-style compound that covers 620 acres, where seemingly every adventure possible is happening here in the park. Strap on a helmet and go on safari while also riding a quad bike, or get the feel for what it’s like to sit and ride on a camel. Fly down the island’s longest ziplines, or climb the Via Ferrata, before clipping into the canyon swing or touring the park on a Segway. All of the experiences have separate charges, although general admission still includes a guided safari adventure, where you drive around in search of zebras, ostriches, impalas, and kudus. You’re sure to see at least a dozen of the park’s 1,500 birds, and to up the adventure to heart-racing levels, join the staff on a stroll through fields full of cheetahs, lions, and tigers.
Many activities such as ziplining and canyoning have minimum age requirements. There are restaurants, boutiques, and gift stores on site, and since there’s no possible way to do it all in a single day, choose the activities that interest you most or come back for additional days.
Insider's Tip: Don’t leave without taking a ride on the immersive 4D cinema. You can literally feel the movie you’re watching, and movies are 21 minutes long and run every 30 minutes.
