We were on a cruise that passed by Buenos Aires. We had heard about this fantastic zoo that lets you interact with the animals and arranged the trip to Lujan Zoo. We took a van from the port early in the morning and made an hour trip to the zoo. The place is very simple, and you must go with comfy shoes, hat and a lot of sunscreen. For the rest it is amazing! You can touch lions, give milk to baby linos, give milk to baby tigers, feed pumpkin to elephants and even grapes to bears! The kids rode on dromedaries! All the animals are raised together with dogs, to make them behave good as said by the people that take care of the animals. By the end of the afternoon my 9years old son took a baby lion on this arms and it felt asleep on his arms... And he was so moved by that that he decided he wanted to take the little lion home!!! (we didn't but the picture of him and "his" lion are beside his bed!!!!).
We ate lunch at the zoo's cafeteria, it is simple, and with very few options, but the food was ok, considering the simplicity of the place.
By the end of the day we drove back to the port and to the ship.
All the kids with us said it was a day to remember... And for us adults it was unforgetable too!!!
