Walk With the Lions Mauritius – Reviews

We did the lion safari with Steeve, it was great. The park is nice to visit but …… Be careful, restaurant to avoid! Especially the burger beef.

A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! We went on the lion walk with Maxwell as our guide. It was an emotional experience Maxwell shared his love and passion for animals with us.

Rangers Rex and Ruben were The drive-through and the interaction with the cheetahs. It’s such a treat to be able to stroke these wild animals. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! It was a memorable day.

Words cannot express how happy we were to be able to approach and pet lions and cheetahs. Time seemed to have stopped. This is our first visit to Mauritius, and all we can think about is returning.
