Refugio Zoologico, Samaipata

(3.2/5 based on 55 reviews on the web)
Primarily a volunteer-run rescue center for endangered animals, Refugio Zoologico offers the opportunity to see animals in ethical captivity in a family-friendly environment. Observe several varieties of birds, monkeys, and big cats at the refuge, with the chance to have a more direct interaction with a select few of the animals. While some may be disappointed by the refuge's relatively small size compared to other zoos, it is important to remember that this is primarily a shelter. Plan to see Refugio Zoologico and other attractions that appeal to you using our Samaipata vacation planner.

  • The place attracts by the name, the fact of wanting to take care of these animals is a great challenge, I hope to receive more help, need a little more signs and guide to go see every animal, although there are not many kids the attraction would be monkeys because some who are free are approaching one
