About the Big Cats Drive Thru activity
You will start the activity at the Big Cats' grounds, meeting your driver and guide for the trip, later boarding the fenced Safari vehicle.
On this fantastic tour, on-board the Safari vehicle, you will be taken into the Big cats' grounds in search of the big cats.
As the engine fires up and while the ranger opens the secured gates, you will be able to hear the roars in the far background.
The first stop is to see the Bengal tigers, including the impressive white tiger. Casela is home to one of the rarest species of tiger in the world.
It is not long before you will come to the most famous big cat: the lion. Lions do a lot of sleeping, but if you are lucky, you will see them striding majestically about their terrain or paying around. This is your chance to get some once in a lifetime photographs of these fantastic big cats.
Moving forward, you will also get to see the caracals; they normally look up when they will hear the sound of the safari vehicle; offering good opportunities to take pictures.
All in all this Big Cats' Drive thru promises to deliver a fun, exciting and memorable wildlife experience in Mauritius.
