What You Can Expect

Lion Habitat Ranch: General Admission, Private Tour or Lion Tamer For a Day

Lion Habitat Ranch

Your up-close feline encounter begins when you enter the Lion Habitat Ranch near Las Vegas, the 8.5-acre (3.4-hectare) home to cats that previously worked at the MGM Lion Habitat. Since the early 1990s, the sanctuary has been the residence of more than 40 lions and their adorable cubs. The ranch staff provides care to the big cats for the rest of their natural lives, and donates a portion of proceeds to wild lion habitats. Stroll along the paved paths for unobstructed views of the giant cats lounging, playing and napping in their habitats. You also have the option of choosing one of the following upgrades to enhance your experience.

Private Small-Group Tour
If you would like to observe the hunters from a different vantage point, choose a private tour. Limited to ten people, professional trainers answer any burning questions about raising and taming lions during an interactive Q&A. After you’ve learned about the inner workings of the sanctuary, explore the grounds on a guided tour. Watch as kings of the jungle and their cubs feed, train, and bathe.

Lion Tamer Experience
To elevate your lion encounter, upgrade to the lion tamer experience, which gives greater one-on-one interaction with the regal felines to participants aged 18 years or older. During the 3- to 4-hour immersion program, safely feed lions from your hand, give water, bathe a giant cat, clean a house and yard and train the lion to meet its mark, just like in the movies!

Both upgrade options include a keepsake “Roaring Lion” T-shirt to commemorate your up-close lion encounter

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

What a great tour! I got to see all the lions and received a detail explanation of their lives. All my questions were answered. I got to watch 3 yearling lions being fed by hand. They were so polite, I wish my dogs were that polite. I also got to watch a lion being bathed. It is a very nice relaxed atmosphere and you could tell the lions were happy and being well taken care of. Can you imagine having a 55 gallon plastic barrel as a toy! It was worth the cost of admission and would be a wonderful family event. Definitely recommend you visit next time you're in Vegas.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this February 2014

The ranch has a great resource of lots of lions. But they did not make it educational. Also too expensive encounter with lion cubs. Which should be in admission price. Total tour takes less than 1 hour. Not worth the money
