Be amazed by the beauty of the condor and the fierceness of the puma at the Metropolitan Zoo. It´s the country’s main zoo and is located on San Cristobal Hill in Santiago. If you want to be in closer contact with the animals go to the Granja Aventura on the outskirts of the capital or to the Safari Park in Rancagua, you’ll be able to feed the cute little lambs or climb on a fitted-out jeep to be surrounded by a pride of wild lions.
