When you talk about safaris in Mauritius you are not talking about herds of wilderbeast for as far as the eye can see!
Instead Mauritius is a tropical coastal destination that offers visitors the lush beauty of its diverse flora and fauna, which is enclosed in the rich, intimate ecosystems of its coasts, mangroves, lagoons, tropical forests, and plains.
Mauritius is home to some of the world’s rarest wildlife. The famed dodo bird, now extinct, once thrived in abundance on Mauritius, before the last one was killed in the 1600s.
Today, many rare and endangered plants and animals can still be found on the island. Native animals include the elusive Dugong, elephant seal, macaques, as well as a large diversity of birds such as the albatross, dove, heron, pigeon, and flamingo that will please any bird lover.
So breathe in the wonderful air (Mauritius’ air quality is ranked second in the world) pack your sun block, hat, binoculars, and camera, and embark on a journey into the Mauritius safari.
Just enter your details on the right and one of our Mauritius safari advisers will get back to you with a recommended trip for you..
As part of your Mauritius safari adventure, visit the Casela Park in the South-West of Mauritius, 10 minutes away from the city of Flic en Flac.
The bird park, with an area of 14 hectares, has 90 aviaries that feature 1500 birds of 150 species across 5 different continents, as well as animals such as macaques, lemurs, ostriches, giant tortoises, tigers, and lions.
The Mauritius safari emphasises human interaction and encounter with animals, and visitors can go to the Petting Farm area to encounter deer, cockatoos, and wild boars. Entrance into the Mauritius safari and access to its facilities cost 9 euros per adult, and 6 for children.
For an unforgettable thrill, visit the Lion’s Park located within the Mauritius safari for a once-in-a-lifetime big cat encounter, where you can get up close and personal with cheetahs, tigers, and lions.
The Lion’s park offers visitors one-on-one time with these impressive predators, which have been tamed by trained handlers. Walk side-by-side with lions and tigers for an hour in a natural environment, and watch them bound along river rocks, scale trees, and feed.
You will have the opportunity to play with, pet, and observe them, and to snap the holiday perfect photograph as you pose with the kings of the jungle.
For the less adventurous, take part in the 30-minute Lions Drive Through attraction, where you may observe lions and tigers from the safety of a 4x4 jeep. Activities in the Lion’s Park carry an additional cost on top of entrance into the Mauritius safari, and are available all day except Sundays.
The 4,500-hectared Yemen Nature Reserve is connected to the Casela Park. Visitors will roam around a vast Mauritius safari, home to animals like the Java deer, wild boars, hares, macaques, zebras, ostriches, and fruit bats. It also holds the Rivere Rempart and the Tamarin River, two of the longest rivers in Mauritius.
Take a safari jeep around the park, or choose to ride on the Segway, an environmentally friendly two-wheeled vehicle for a single person with a self-balancing system. Travel around the Mauritius safari with the guidance of park rangers, watch animals in their natural habitats, and experience the Mauritius safari in a personal way.
Other specialised transportation includes quad biking around the park, which can seat two people. For the complete Mauritius safari adventure experience, zipline 150 metres across a stunning gorge, swim across a canyon, and hike in forested areas.
