You don’t have to travel to Africa to get up close and personal with the King of the Jungle. Lion Habitat Ranch, located just outside Sin City, offers up the unique opportunity for travelers to experience the wonder of one of the world’s biggest cats.
Take a behind the scenes tour of this family-oriented, outdoor destination to learn more about conservation efforts to protect these and other wild animals. For an additional fee, hand-feed giraffes or lions a pound of their favorite foods, or enjoy a picnic lunch in a protected enclosure while these giant cats wander around you. While lions are the big draw of this popular attraction, travelers will also find emus, ostriches, parrots, giraffes and other animals in this protected habitat.
The ranch is located at 382 Burner Avenue in Henderson, Nevada, about 16 miles southeast of Las Vegas. It is open Friday through Monday from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. and closed Tuesday through Thursday. Because the space is outdoors, Lion Habitat Ranch closes during inclement weather. Call after heavy rains to insure the park is open. Entrance is $25 for adults, which also includes entry of one child.
