Temaiken was born from the combination of two Tehuelche words, Tem (earth) and Aiken (life), and it suggests the respect these indigenous communities had for nature. Located only 30 miles from downtown Buenos Aires, the expansive Temaiken zoo occupies 85 acres of beautifully forested land. Strolling through the paths of this amazing park you can appreciate almost 5000 animals belonging to over 400 species living in carefully reconstructed habitats. Be sure to check out the fascinating Aquarius. It's divided in three main sectors (marine coast, fresh water and Seawater) and harbors an impressive array of fauna, from sharks and manta rays to tapirs and turtles. Temaiken also has a comfortable food court and world-class infrastructure, making it the ideal option for a great family outing. You can plan an educational outing or a corporate visit or even celebrate you're birthday here.
