Casela Safari Park is situated near Flic en Flac in the west of Mauritius. The Safari Park has activities for the whole family. The park offers Explorer Adventures, Family Adventures and Safari Adventures. Having two small kids we skipped the ziplines in the Explorer Adventure package. We went for the petting farm, the great playground, giraffe viewing and the Safari Tour and our kids loved it.
The petting farm offers the chance to get close to rabbits, turtles and deers. The kids are allowed to touch the animals and touching a giant turtle for the first time was a unique experience for our son. He was one big smile. After spending time at the petting farm we went for the big playground.
The playground in Casela Safari Park is really great and safe. It has slides and swings and toy animals to play with. Our son was thrilled, he hadn’t experienced other playgrounds during our holiday in Mauritius. We had a picnic on a bench and took our time enjoying our happy 3 year old. Our baby girl was awake from her nap in her stroller and she enjoyed the swings as well.
Then it was time for the safari tour. We boarded a 30 seater open safari bus. We experienced ostrichs who came really close to the passengers, some of them a bit aggressive, but no one was harmed. Afterwards we saw rhinoceros in the distance and antelopes. The safari tour was the highlight of the day. It was perfect with smaller children. Our baby girl slept while our son was trying to spot all the different animals. The tour was 45 minutes and it was the perfect lenght. We had by then a tired 3 year old who wanted a nap in the car.
If you plan to go to the safari park, remember to bring a stroller and a lunch box. The food served at the restaurants is borring and expensive.Share on Facebook
