This activity is superb. This is something like living a mogli life straight from the jungle book character. You actually touch the beast in a friendly encounter which will leave you in bewilderment and excited.

Expensive but just do it. Photographer takes lots of photos, have to buy the whole lot but you can share with friends who go with you. Patting a big lion is quite an experience.

The safari is a convenient tour among animals which may be attraction to children. the Lion encounter is also an event children will see in a very few places. while the rest of the zoo where animals are in cages, this is the best part.

For a change we were in captive and the Tigres and Lions were moving freely around. We could see around 15 tigres and quiite a few Lions. A very pleasant location and a must watch place in Mauritius.

there are many attractions, the price depend on what you choose to do. there is an entrance fee which includes only sliding attraction. Best to check their website.

Curious Corner is awesome, the beaches are great fun, Casela is ok but she will be limited to what she can and can't do because of her height. I would say the best bet for fun is probably the beaches there aren't a lot of... More
