What a hidden gem. We used to be sure to stop by the MGM hotel to see the lions there, but they closed that exhibit down in 2012. What struck me about this place was the cleanliness and palpable love for these animals that the trainers had. You can just tell when someone speaks animal, and these people do. The most important thing to the wonderful people here is the health and happiness of their animals. Highest recommendation! Also, the behind the scenes tour has a lot less people trying to get the attention of the lions - after our tour, there were large groups of kids laughing at the lions, who were grumbling back at them - found the kids annoying and wondering where the parents were - only to sadly realize, they were right next to them doing the same thing. Too bad you can't pass a test before you're allowed to be with these majestic beasts. Do yourself a favor and visit this place - but please be respectful of the big kitties!

The lion habitat is a great family outing. As soon as you enter the you see their main, huge lion as a backdrop to amazing picture shots. This place is such a hidden gem outside of the city noise. It took us about an hour to walk through it & we really enjoyed ourselves.

My family and I enjoyed our visit to the lion habitat. It has more than just lions there, you can see birds, ostriches, and giraffes. My daughter had the opportunity to feed the giraffe while petting him. That was her highlight of the day. It was awesome to when they feed the lions because all of them start to roar, and it can be heard throughout the entire facility. If you a family traveling in Las Vegas, this is a must see.

I never even knew there was a Lion Habitat Ranch in Las Vegas until my fiancé decided that we were going to take our son to see some lions. It was a lot of fun and the facility had numerous cats, ostriches, parakeets, and a famously talented giraffe name Ozzie. Ozzie the Giraffe was my favorite and they even had a half off price to hand feed Ozzie, so we took full advantage of that price and my son got his first experience feeding a giraffe.

The Lion Habitat Ranch was amazing! Bentley the lion was my favorite, he is considered the biggest male lion there and weighs over 500 lbs. We took our son there to see lions in person for his first time and he enjoyed every minute of it. They had snow cones, chips and little souvenirs for guests to purchase while they are there. For the animals there, they had food that you can purchase to hand feed them (not the lions), just make sure you bring plenty of quarters as they are dispensed through a gumball machine.

Way Better than a zoo. The whole staff are well informed and very helpful. It was a pleasure and really great day.

Lion Habitat Ranch Is amazing! I took the upgrade option to feed the lions. It was a blast, how many times are you going to be that close and safe to a lion? it is a really great activity to do in Vegas, something different. If you are into wild life and come to Vegas this is a must see.

Amazing!! Staff very knowledgeable about the animals in their care. Cute baby giraffe that paints a must see. I highly recommend this tour to everyone! Price may seem a bit high but when you see what it takes to care for these beautiful animals on a daily basis, the donation is well worth the price!

The Lion Habitat Ranch was amazing! Would definitely recommend! Such good value for money too! So many lions to see and the cubs that are there at the moment are so cute, it's great how you can watch them get fed and everything. The giraffe that is there is adorable, and he paints! Was the best animal themed thing that we did whilst in Vegas. It is a bit off the strip, but 100 worth it. The staff are amazing also, all so friendly and welcoming.
