This was originally a bird sanctuary and has gradually developed to become a major tourist attraction on the West Coast between Cascavelles and Tamarin.
With over 250 hectares, Casela is home to 1,500 birds as well as white lions, Bengal tigers, cheetahs, hyenas, camels, pygmy hippos, white rhinos and giant tortoises amongst others. There are also zip wires, mud karting and other activities.
Having enjoyed African safaris I was only really interested in the giant tortoises and the birds.
It is amazing how fast these tortoises move when there is food around.
The birds have so much colour, it comes from the most unbelievable paintbox.
It was enjoyable to see the birds at close quarters with such amazing colours.
A very successful enterprise but give me a game park, everytime.
