What to Expect

Experience a once-in-a-lifetime adventure in the Mauritius Safari & Bird Park and feel the adrenaline rush of being up-close to amazing lions as you take a 1-hour walk with the lords of the jungle in complete safety.

Located on the banks of the Riviere du Rempart, upon arrival you will go by special safari bus to the lions' reserve, where you will meet lions, tigers, and cheetahs. The safari team will brief you with a short chat on the safety measures you will need during your adventure. Spend some time getting to know your lions under the coolness of the trees. View the free-roaming lions up close, playing on the rocks of the river bank and climbing up trees.

Then, start your walk under the supervision of the lion handlers. Experience first-hand what it feels like to stroll alongside them. You will even get to pet them. Discover how the lions interact, and how they feed. After your walk, refreshments will be served, followed by an explanation of the Safari Park’s lion reproduction and conservation program.

You are then free to explore the rest of the Safari Park on your own, with magnificent views of the west coast of Mauritius. Visit the Bird Park, home to 150 species of birds from 5 continents, including the lovely native long-necked pink pigeons, which until recently were threatened with extinction. Go to the Petting Farm, and get access to the park’s other facilities, such as the children’s corner, and sumptuous Mauritian food in the park’s fabulous restaurant.

4.0/5 stars

Bitte darauf achten, dass es die Begegnung und die Interaktion mit den Löwen gibt. Die Begegnung ist deutlich länger als die Interaktion. Das konnte vor Ort keiner erklären bzw. es gab Mißverständnisse. Wir hatten jedoch korrekt die Begegnung gebucht. Die Begegnung war einfach unbeschreiblich, auch Bilder wurden gemacht. Sicherheit wird groß geschrieben, ich hatte zu keiner Zeit Bedenken. Danke an Bruno, der unser Guide war - super Job! Die Bilder, die gemacht werden, sind wirkich sehr gut. Die DVD kostet allerdings weitere 25 EUR, was etwas zu hoch bemessen ist, aber dennoch gibt es hier 4 Sterne.
