Join the only Safari and Bird Park in Mauritius and give your child the unique chance to go behind the scenes as a real zookeeper.
The Casela World of Adventures is a true animals’ sanctuary, housing over 1,500 species of birds, lions, tigers, zebras, ostriches, giraffes and many other African animals. As such, the Zookeeper for a Day package presents a wonderful opportunity to the children to spend half day in the different sections of the park assisting the zookeepers.
From food preparation to distribution, through the observation of animals or enrichment for their living environments, the children will experience the duties of a zookeeper and will be sensitized about the protection of biodiversity.
This interesting kids’ package also includes the park’s entrance ticket, a “Zookeeper” t-shirt, lunch, refreshments and a group photo session.
This Zookeeper for a Day activity is perfect for the young ones to learn about the animals and get closer to nature!
We know how hard it is to entertain children when boring playground activities no longer do the trick. At Casela , parents will not have to worry as the unique Zookeeper for a Day activity will surely keep the children busy and happy for hours.
This enriching activity is offered to children between 8 – 14 years where they will spend the day with the park’s animal care staff. This is very much a hands-on experience which will give the children an insight into the amazing amount of work that goes on behind the scenes at Mauritius only Safari and Bird Park.
On arrival at Casela , you will be warmly greeted by the staff members, followed by a presentation on the park by your zookeeper host of the day. The latter will also provide you with a briefing on the day’s activities and on the essential safety rules. You will also be presented with a T -Shirt entitled “Zookeeper” which you will wear during the day and be more inspired in the shoes of a zookeeper.
Casela World of Adventures offers a preferential rate to all schools on the island for school/field trips.

HAIRS, FEATHERS OR SCALES? / As from 3-4 years old
Learn that some animals have feathers, other hair or scales…! The children will learn about the key features and properties. They will approach and manipulate small animal companions. A time to experience the animal world for the kids!
FROM EGG TO CHICK / As from 3-4 years old
Children will discover one of the greatest miracles of nature – the transformation of the egg into the chick. Observing and understanding the development of the embryo inside the egg around hand-on activities, what fun!
BIRDS / As from 6 years old
A bird is beautiful to see (watch), it has a melodious song (hear) and its feathers are fun to pet (touch). Here is a theme that will connect the sensory organs and the fascinating subject of birds. How do they fly? How do they use their beaks and their feet? Children will have the chance to meet our tame birds.
We can create the workshop adapted to your need. Don’t hesitate to contact our Education department.
