Open since 1979, Casela Park covers an area of 34 acres. It is home to some one hundred aviaries which more than 1,500 birds, like the budgie, the cockatoo and the pheasant, call home. The most original thing about this park, though, is its variety of animals. It is home to lions, zebras, giant tortoises, monkeys and tigers. It is even possible to go on a walk with the king of the jungle.
Activities here include excursions on a 4x4, a dune buggy or an electric car. Those who aren't afraid of heights can enjoy the longest zip-line in the Indian Ocean and cross suspended bridges. For those a little less daring, there is a farm and several fish ponds they can visit. The park is open every day except Christmas Day and New Year's Day. The visit of the park takes about two hours.
