Kylie Minogue has adopted a 2-day-old lion club in South Africa.
The singer, who finished her Aphrodite tour in Cape Town last month, fell in love with the little cub when she visited Ukutula, a game farm near Johannesburg.

And she was so taken with it she decided to call it Kylie. Fancy meeting her too? Simply book a trip to South Africa and get stuck in!
Ukutula Lion Park takes on volunteers from all over the world to help research, breed and aid in the conservation of lions and other animals. Not only will you assist in feeding, cleaning and maintaining enclosures, you’ll also get the chance to care for the cubs by bottle feeding them and seeing to their every need.
