What to Expect
Experience a thrilling adventure in the Mauritius Safari & Bird Park and feel the adrenaline rush of being up-close to amazing lions and caracals as you enter their enclosures to pet and interact with them.

Located on the banks of the Riviere du Rempart, upon arrival you will go to the lion or caracal enclosures, depending on your booking. A safari team will be waiting to brief you with a short chat on the safety measures you will need to follow.

Then, enter the lion or caracal enclosure for an exciting 15 minutes under the safe supervision of their handlers. The size, strength and beauty of the lions can really be appreciated once inside the enclosure. You will even get to touch them, and see how they play and interact.

If you have booked a combined lion and caracal tour, you will then enter the caracals’ enclosure for another thrilling 15 minutes in the company of the handlers.

Continue your visit to the rest of the Safari and Bird Park, where you will be rewarded with magnificent views of the west coast of Mauritius. Visit the Bird Park, home to 150 species of birds, including the lovely native long-necked pink pigeons. 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.
