It is based on three mainstays: RESERCH, EDUCATION AND PRESERVATION. In order to carry out its mission of promoting the study, research, knowledge and communication of all matters related to flora and fauna, fostering a sense of respect for the preservation and restoration of the environment, Temaikèn has:• A Biopark, located in the city of Belén de Escobar: to communicate environmental issues and raise awareness on people, through entertainment and contact with nature.• A Natural Reserve in the Province of Misiones: that works as a “biological shock absorber” for the Teyú Cuaré Provincial Park, extending the protected area of the pristine rainforest. Temaikèn also co-manages 2 Provincial Parks: Cruce Caballero and Araucarias, both part of the Pino Paraná Forest ecosystem, also in the Province of Misiones.• Educational Programs: for the purpose of “Educating to Preserve” Temaikèn provides institutions with its educational programs adapted to school curricula and applicable to all levels of education: Initial, PEB, ESB, High School, Primary School, Secondary School and Special Education.

Chevallier offers dirty buses (mine was like being in a bathroom during 1,5 hour) and the 60 line takes more than 1 30 hour, that can be with no seat...Another problem is the sube card, hard to find where to buy, full...

An amazing experience to do from September untill April. Better if done avoiding weekends, specially in summer. Endangered animals are in good hands, staff is trained to teach the children to appreciate nature. You can book a backstage visit, check their website.

This is a great place to go for a family. We took a bus from downtown BA to Temaiken and it was much more of an adventure and took a lot longer than we anticipated, (about 2 hours), but was still worth it. The whole area is well done in a more natural type setting. There are activities for the... More

I've been twice to Teimaken and I will keep going back!! This is a park with animals who are endangered species. It's not a Zoo and you will not find petting activities, nor animals doing tricks.. But you will find breathtaking scenery, activities, awesome ice cream and a great grasp of nature with a breath of fresh air. Please give... More

The second time in a year we come with our kids to Temaiken. They simply loved it. And the grown up too. It is always great. It is a good example of park to be followed: amusing and educative. We always feel amazed and responsible for preservation and a healthy relationship with nature.

something different from other zoos. Very good choice to visit. from 10:00 to 18:00 hs. Take the time to arrive early in the morning to visit the birds section too. Incredible variety of local and no local birds and animals. You have to see the acuarium with salt and fresh water fishes, with sharks and other species. You'll enjoy-

We really liked our visit to Temaiken. When compared to the other Zoo's i've visited, this was really something different. It feels like an ecological experience, that the park cares about its environment and its animals. Everything was of high quality, albeit a bit pricey and hard to get to by public transport.
