The History of Casela

The story of Casela started with a fortunate event and the discovery of a treasure. Back in the 1970s, one fine day, during a visit to the sugarcane fields of Medine, in the region of Cascavelle, two former directors of the Medine Group unveil a treasure: a spring, hidden on a forgotten piece of fallow land and surrounded by centenary trees. The natural beauty of the place held them in awe. A magnificent garden with aviaries was created. The nearby ruins of an old house inspired its name “Casela”, from “la case la”, which means the house in Creole. The place originally meant for the Medine employees was opened to the public and inaugurated on the 12th of December 1979.

Activities & animals of Casela

A favorite of visitors from near and far Casela is the must-see attraction when coming to Mauritius; a place where families and nature lovers reconnect. The park is divided into several zones, each with its own specificities. The Predator Kingdom regroups lions, tigers, hyenas, cheetahs, serval, caracal and camels! The walk with lions and interaction with cheetahs are a life-time experience for visitors! If you want to have a taste of Africa, then do not miss the African Safari by bus or Quad where you will come across hundreds of antelopes, zebras, ostriches and 2 majestic rhinos! Breakfast with giraffe is one of the highlights of the park, where, clients can soak up the nature and enjoy a delectable breakfast with the world’s tallest animals! Pangia is the perfect place for an awesome family time! With its rides, carousels and petting farm, kids will have a blast. As for adrenaline seekers, they can take their visit to new heights at Thrill Mountain where they can zip across the canyons, walk on the Nepalese Bridge and scream to the top of their voice on the canyon swing!

Protection of endangered species

Casela is more than ever involved in the conservation and protection of endangered species and is home to White Rhinos, Bengal Tigers and Fruit Bats. The park also witnesses the births of several species at different seasons and we were proud when our adult giraffes gave birth to 2 babies on 2 consecutive years! Our Mauritian giraffes Nyota and Kamaria are enjoying their life at the park roaming around and feeding on acacia leaves! We are all about building sustainability for the future and will also have our own endemic garden in the near future.
