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 .

  • I went with my daughter to the zoo de Lujan, by her request, because I didn't believe very much in what they were saying. I was amazed. The Superguias accompanied us and did an amazing ride. The animals are healthy and happy. We had the opportunity to interact with the animals and took several pictures. It is truly a unique experience.

  • Having seen other Zoo can say that animals do not are in the best conditions, falling deficiency that causes hurt, but knowing that is an institution sustained auto that apparently is dedicated to receiving animals in rehabilitation or rescued, can be understand the clear lack of resources that presents. At least the staff there is committed to their work and engaged in what they do, keeping their animals the best thing which can with the networks that have

  • The Lujan ZOO offers you a unique experience: enter the cage of wild beasts, and that's not all, you can play them without that they don't even bother with you. A mixture of fear and adrenaline. A very nice ride, similar to Simba Safari, only with more emotion. For those who want to visit the ZOO de Lujan advice is to go with comfortable clothes and shoes or sneakers, no slippers. Is a bit extensive ZOO, then you will have to walk a lot, another tip is to take plenty of water, biscuits, cookies, etc., as there is in the ZOO only a place for the sale of food and beverages. The ZOO has bathrooms. Like I said it's a nice ride, but very tiring, because we left Buenos Aires to Luján and the path it took about 3 hours there and 3 more hours back, because we were in a bus from our travel agency.

  • 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!
  • Great zoo, the people that work here are all really personable. You can take amazing photos here too
  • 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!
  • very lonely and sad on weekdays. you must be 18+ to pet the adult lion.
