Parque Safari de Rancagua
In addition to the animal exhibits, this zoo takes visitors through a five-acre enclosure that is home to six lions. The trucks are enclosed in metal cages, and meat is thrown onto the roof. Once the lions leap onto the cage, visitors get a very up close and personal look at these magnificent animals. This tour is not for the faint of heart!
