ZOO Lujan, Lujan

3.6
#1 of 10 in Things to do in Lujan
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. To visit ZOO Lujan and other attractions in Lujan, use our Lujan online trip maker .

    The decline of the man reflected in a place where the misery of animals coexists with the apathy of the man towards nature. Do not go. It rather not think.

    The Zoo is worth it because it's unique experience, unlike anything in Brazil. But I don't know how the animals are happy in a cage. The lion was totally sleepy. .. just didn't seem to be the "King of the jungle"

    Visit the Zoo Lujan is the greatest feeling that a person can have, because you can have contact with some of the local animals like Tiger, elephant, lion. A magical moment and one that I will take to my whole life.

    I hope one day all these people who gave 5 stars and give money for this animal abuse and exploitation institution come out from their giant buble of ignorance and understands that this is a crime. And I really hope they understand that they are responsible for that abuse with these poor animals just to feed their stupid vanity and futility. See magnificent wild animal been treated as a domestic pet is sad, not natural and an abuse for their nature. If you like to see it you DON'T LIKE ANIMALS AT ALL. You are just a giant selfish ignorant who is financing an animal abuse crime!

    Good option if a picture with a tiger or a lion is a must on your bucket list. Otherwise a very sad place to visit.

    Great zoo! Small, but the interaction we have with animals is priceless!!! Before going, I heard that animals were sedated, but that's not true!!! They are raised in the zoo since they're babies and are used with people. There are even dogs living in the tiger and lion cages as they grew up together!!! This zoo is definetely a MUST SEE!!!! No where else you'll have this amazing interaction!
