"Thank u Willi & Gillian at Ukutula.com for the honour of naming this little 2 day old lion cub after me," Minogue Tweeted on Sunday. "Kylie cub!!!! Who wants another pic????"
The star shared two photos of her cub cuddle, which happened courtesy of trained guides from Ukutula Lion Park & Lodge near Johannesburg, South Africa. The sprawling game farm is home to a lion education center where children and adults can take guided tours through lion enclosures and bottle-feed cubs.
The roar of concert crowds must have been a distant memory during Minogue's visit. According to Ukatula's website, the lodge is known as the "place of quiet" where the roar of the lion can be heard for miles.
