Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Central Argentina / Province of Buenos Aires / Lujan / ZOO 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 best Zoo that I have ever been. It is so cute the little lion. It is also amazing to feed the tigers and to touch the big male lion. Other animals are so grateful like the elephant. I recommend to go with children. It is also a good place to go if you are in honeymoon in Buenos Aires.
Great to bring the kids. It's not an entertainment zoo, so you'll not find everything clean and organized. The experience to close to the animals, thought, is unique.
