We didn’t make it over to Siegfried and Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat
until our last trip and when we did we wondered why we hadn’t had it higher up on our list of things to do in Sin City. It's one of the best tourist attractions in Las Vegas for animal-lovers. (Other good attractions for animal-lovers are the
at the Flamingo hotel casino in Las Vegas and the
MGM Grand Lion Habitat
About the Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat
Siegfried and Roy and Las Vegas go hand in hand. They're German entertainers who are well-known for performing with white lions and tigers. Until the Siegfried and Roy tiger attack in 2003 ended their show at the Mirage Hotel Vegas it was one of the most popular in Sin City.
As well as being entertainers the duo set up the Siegfried and Roy Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat to safeguard the future of endangered species. The main purpose of the mini zoo is research and educating visitors including students and teachers about these magnificent animals.
In their own words: "Long ago, Roy and I realized that everything that happens to this planet is man's responsibility. Our responsibility," says Siegfried.
"After living and working with some of the world's most magnificent creatures, we have felt the threat of their loss. So we felt compelled to create a safe environment – an environment in which these animals could live in serenity," says Roy.
The cost of visiting all the great attractions Las Vegas has to offer can really add to the cost of your trip. To help keep costs down
we usually get a Las Vegas Power Pass
With it you’ll have access to over 20 attractions, tours, rides etc.
The Power Pass is worth more than $500
in admissions and discounts.
White Tiger Cubs
Time really flies by when you’re here. We spent ages watching the trainer play with the energetic white tiger cubs. They were so cute and acted just like puppies tumbling and rolling over each other to get to the red ball he was throwing for them.
Secret Garden Animals
There are lots of different types of animals at the Secret Garden. We also saw spotted leopards; adult white tigers and white lions.
Not all the animals had as much energy as the tiger cubs. The adult tigers paid no attention to the chicken that was wondering around their enclosure.
There are three pools in this area and you can get quite near to the bottlenose dolphins. We had a great view of the trainers feeding three of the mammals. It was quite something to see these playful, intelligent creatures so close-up.
Pictures of the dolphins at the Siegfried and Roy Habitat
After the feeding we went down to the Underwater Viewing area where you get a different perspective of the dolphins and they swim through the water.
