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.

  • Animals are drugged. All of them, it’s horrible. It needs to close permanently. I cannot believe that it’s still open

  • I visited Lujan Zoo in 2016. I had a wonderful time! Don't believe posts that tell you animals are drugged. They are not! I found it to be a safe, well managed experience of a lifetime to be up close....  more

  • Going in the tiger cages was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done in my life! The animals seem well cared for and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. You can buy pics at some of the stops but they will also take pics on your phone for you. Go do this while you are in Argentina! It’s worth the drive.
  • Small zoo, though they have more big cats. 60 kms away from the city, families will enjoy
