ZOO Lujan, Lujan

(3,400+ reviews on the web)
Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
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.

  • 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!
  • Good place to have contact with the animals..
  • I went there to find out what's about it. No zombie animals, no dirty cages, no bad treatment, chains or anything like that. There is a lot of explaining of how the animals get so docile, but it's hard to buy. Confusing, but a lovely unique experience.
  • This is great place .
