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 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.
