Itinerary
Head to the Lion Habitat Ranch, approximately 15 minutes south of the Las Vegas Strip in Henderson, Nevada. This 8.5-acre sanctuary is home to the big cats that previously worked at the MGM Grand’s lion habitat. Since the early 1990s, the ranch has been the residence of more than 40 lions and their cubs. 

Stroll along the paved paths and watch the lions lounging, playing and napping in their habitats on a self-guided tour of the facility.

As an added option, upgrade to include an informative and entertaining, behind-the-scenes tour of the ranch. This exclusive, 90-minute, small-group tour features the sanctuary’s professional trainers feeding, cleaning, watering and bathing the animals as they do on a regular basis. Along the way, ask questions about the daily activities of the lions and also about what’s involved in raising and taming them. Then spend time hand feeding the ranch’s young giraffe. Bring a camera. There will be some great, close-up photo opportunities.

After exploring the inner workings of the sanctuary, take to the grounds for an additional guided tour with one of the trainers.

No other animals other than service animals are allowed. You could call them and ask if its a special situation but I am quite sure they will say they aren't allowed.
