Full Description

About the Big Cats Drive Thru at Casela Nature Parks

Join the only Safari Big Cats Drive Thru in Mauritius and meet the lions and tigers at the famous Casela Nature Parks!

Who would have thought that in this tropical paradise, you’d be able to encounter the most recognised members of the Big Cat family? Casela Nature Parks is famous for its big cats, and the Big Cats Drive Thru presents a wonderful opportunity for you to get up close and view the lions and tigers that roam the park.

During this fantastic tour, whilst on board the Safari vehicle, you will be taken into the Big Cats' grounds in search of the big cats.

After meeting your driver and guide for the trip, you will board the caged Safari vehicle. As the engine fires up and the ranger opens the secured gates, you will be able to hear the roars in the far distance.

The first stop is to see the Bengal tigers, with their iconic orange colour and dark stripes. But you’d also be pleasantly surprised to know that Casela is home to one of the rarest species of tiger in the world - the impressive white tiger. With its creamy white coat and blue-grey eyes, these majestic beasts will leave you in awe.

It won’t be long before you will come close to the most famous big cat: the Lion. Also known as the king of all animals, lions do a lot of sleeping, but if you are lucky, you will see them striding majestically about their terrain or playing around. This is your chance to get some once-in-a-lifetime photographs of these fantastic big cats.

During the activity, the park’s guide will provide interesting information on the big cats, their behaviour and habitat while also sharing their personal experience of working alongside these remarkable animals.

All in all, this Big Cats' Drive thru promises to deliver a fun, exciting and memorable wildlife experience in Mauritius.
