Kylie Minogue's Aphrodite world tour
is wrapping up in a few days, and lots of hugs are going around
. The best hug the megastar has received on her travels? One from Kylie, a 2-day-old lion cub
who was named after her!
"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.
