UberLIONS Roam the Mighty District

UberKITTENS was great, but this year, we needed to deliver something bigger. So we asked ourselves, “What’s bigger than kittens?”

The answer? Lions.

Today, we’re partnering with Nat Geo Wild, the network from National Geographic, to bring you the wildest campaign yet—UberLIONS—on-demand lion cubs! That’s right, with just a tap of a button you could be petting and playing with a real live lion cub.

Enter the code LIONCUBSDC today and request LIONS between 9am – 12pm for your chance to snuggle with lion cubs!

There’s more to UberLIONS than just some fierce lion cub snuggles (which will be supervised by trained handlers). We’ve also teamed up with National Geographic’s Big Cats Initiative to raise awareness and help ensure that big cats like lions don’t disappear. For every person who applies the promo code LIONCUBSDC today, we’ll donate $1 toward the Big Cats Initiative.


  1. Open your app and enter the promo code LIONCUBSDC
  2. Request LIONS today, starting at 9am
  3. If you’re connected, lion cubs (and a trainer) will come right to you ready to play
  4. Whether or not you get to snuggle with the lion cubs, just by entering the promo code you’re helping the cause


  • UberLIONS is available only in the District of Columbia
  • Please make sure you you have a secure indoor area ready for lion cub playtime when you request
  • Each UberLIONS visit is 15 minutes long and totally FREE

Demand will be high, so please be patient. If we don’t make it to you today with UberLIONS, you can always get your lion fix by tuning into Nat Geo Wild’s Big Cat Week—purrrfect programming for big cat fans.


In addition to applying the code LIONCUBSDC, you can also make a direct donation. Text “Lions” to 50555 to donate $10 toward National Geographic’s ground conservation projects. (Message and data rates apply.)
