Pundits remain strongly divided about ZOO Lujan, often referred to as the "extreme petting zoo" or the "world's most dangerous zoo." Fans rave about the experience of getting up close to, and even touching, some of the world's most dangerous and majestic predators, especially lions and tigers. Animal rights activists slam the attraction, accusing staff of drugging the animals to make them more placid during their interactions with visitors. If you do decide to visit, take extreme care and remember to treat the animals with respect. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Lujan holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the ZOO Lujan and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • At this zoo you can live the experience of being in direct contact with the animals, you can caress them, feed them and take pictures with them. It is a very nice experience and Zoo has a variety of aninales and their coaches give you confidence to be able to qcercarte. This place is approximately 1 hour from Buenos Aires. Take the full tour living all the experience you can take between 2 and 3 hours.

  • We went in a group of 8 being 4 adults and 4 teenagers. The place was smelly, with feces scattered all over the floor, making it difficult to walk. Clearly animals were drugged. Without any kind of interaction. Of course interact with a lion is complicated, but seeing them in such degrading situation is sad. I do not recommend, especially if you're with children, as it is depressing. For kids Temaiken is infinitely more educational.
