The Lion Habitat Ranch, celebrating nine years being opened to the public, is hosting a “Santa Claws” event with Christmas activities all weekend, Friday, December 24th to Sunday, December 26th, from 11am to 3pm, (last admission is at 2pm).
Guests may book their admission and time slot online: https://lionhabitatranch.org/product/general-admission/
Santa Claws event includes:
- Lions will be receiving some Christmas themed enrichment
- Scavenger hunt to learn about animals that live in the North Pole (and photo opportunities around the wildlife sanctuary)
- Story time with Ozzie, the giraffe, every hour on the 15-minute interval.
Besides general admission, which locals pay $20, this wildlife sanctuary offers a handful of specialty experiences. Reserve your spot-on Feast With the Beasts—an unforgettable private party that manages to stand out in a city with already flashy experiences. With this experience, you’ll have a private, glass-enclosed table to share with your guests, surrounded by lions. Staff will prepare a box lunch, create a picnic or formal meal, or guests can even bring their own picnic.
Another unforgettable specialty outdoor experience at Lion Habitat Ranch is the Behind-the-Scenes Tour, which guides your party around the ranch where you’ll see staff feeding, cleaning, watering and bathing the animals.
Guests can also reserve their spot on the Feed the Animals experience, where you can hand feed a lion. Ozzie also may be fed for $10 each and offers painting shows every 1/2 hour while opened, where his artwork is also sold in the gift shop to benefit the habitat.
Lion Habitat Ranch is located at 382 E. Bruner, Henderson, Nev. 89044 (Near M Resort). The Lion Habitat Ranch is open to the public Friday – Monday 11am – 3pm. For more information on the habitat visit lionhabitatranch.org.
