THE WILDER SIDE
The Mirage hotel is known not only for wrapping its guests in luxury, but also for the wildcats and dolphins of Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat. Visitors watch dolphins swim, “tail-walk” and perform various tricks in a naturalistic habitat.
For an even more intimate experience, guests can participate in the Trainer for a Day program, which costs $595 for about five hours of play and interaction. After donning wet suits, tourists become trainers and get to swim, take pictures and feed the dolphins.
The grounds also comprise a lush wildcat environment with six different showcases of leopards, lions and tigers. Guests watch the furry beasts pounce and play among the rich foliage to the beat of jungle music. — Sarah Tooker
