Lion Habitat Ranch

Since 1989, Lion Habitat Ranch has provided a home for lions and promoted the conservation efforts of wild lion habitats. Located just outside Las Vegas, the habitat gives you the chance to see and learn about these big cats and their cubs, who used to be seen at the MGM Grand until the hotel closed its lion habitat in 2012.
