    This is a very special place. Please note, it’s a short drive outside of the city and the other are purely ground. Unique experience in many ways. Argentinians get charged less, but remember, foreigners don’t pay 21% taxes when traveling within the country, so I would stop complaining.

    Bucket list experience! GO!!
    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 and personal with the lions and tigers. Especially my walk with Alan the lion! Do not hesitate to go.

    Magnifique
    Nous avons pu approcher plusieurs animaux : tigres, lions, éléphants, ours, perroquets, toucans etc. C'était absolument magnifique !!! Nous avons pu nourrir des ours et des perroquets, caresser des tigres... Pour ceux qui dénoncent ce zoo : je n'ai pas remarqué de comportement troublant de la part des animaux, aucun signe de maltraitance, les animaux n'ont pas l'air affamé. Oui ils sont tout sage, oui ils passent leur temps à dormir. Mais que voulez-vous qu'ils fassent? Ils sont la plupart du temps nés en captivité, ils ne savent pas ce qu'est courir... je préfère des animaux dans un zoo que dans un cirque pour amuser la galerie. Maintenant on ne touche pas un animal comme on veut, nous avons du respecter des consignes de sécurité et c'est tout à fait normal. Ça nous apprend aussi à respecter l'animal. Je recommande +++

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

It was not one of the best experiences in Buenos Aires. To tell you, it's rather embarrassing to see sleeping animals so humans can take pictures. Because we have been curious to see such a place, ethically and sentimentally we are not comfortable with such a situation. Some animals in small cages, with no room to move perfectly and fully. Very sad to see animals like lions, lionesses, tigers, baby tigers, even elephants with chains or collars tied to the wall or sleeping on tables. We have not had the courage to feed ourselves on the spot.

Non Argentinians get charged triple to enter. Bad place in all ways. It should be closed down permanently.

This place should be closed down.
Animals are drugged in order for tourists to ride them. Since when it is ok to sit on a lion? If you love animals please dknt go there!

Not the cleanest and honestly stinks at a few spots. But it is a (private) zoo, so go with realistic expectations. Having said, the place provides decent animal interactions, especially with the big cats. They had cages with tiger/lion cubs and dogs, with the latter acting alpha.(amazed the heck outa me lol)

Tips:
1. Zoo Lujan opens at 9am. Get there early to beat the crowd.

2.If visiting from BA and don't have a rental car, fabe bus is a good option Costs about AR $150($9) each way and starts near Obelisco/Cerrito and Sarmiento
