About Us

In a joint venture operation, Gatas Group has built and managed on a 26000 squared meters the “Animal City” (the first and only one in Lebanon), containing a big zoo (200 species of animals), a large entertaining area for children games (Inflatable tunnels, castles, sliders, jumpers, arcades) and many more interesting features. In addition to 15 outlets such as a restaurant (250 sitting persons), a fast food and a snack bar, a pets and gifts shop, a ballroom for birthdays and special events... Animal City is a magical environment where you can enjoy your time, explore, expand your knowledge and interact with various live exotic animals, in the beautiful and natural Naher el Kaleb Valley.

Our Mission

Animal City is a refuge containing more than 50 species of wild and domestic animals sheltered, fed and protected. We care about inspiring people to care, educating tomorrow’s wildlife warriors and giving families a great day out.

Our Services


Animal City has devoted a large entertainment area for kids to fully enjoy their time (Inflatable tunnels, castles, sliders, jumpers, arcades). It is an educational yet entertaining environment that is fit for your little ones. Let your kids go wild and enjoy a fun and exciting day.

Snake Photoshoot

A thrilling and adrenaline full experience is available here at our animal shelter. Any animal lover is welcome to interact with the venom free python snake and capture this moment on a camera.

Pony/Horse Riding

Pony/Horse riding is our most famous and demanded activity. Almost every child that has visited Animal City has taken a ride back on the ponies and has cherished this memory. We also encourage the children interested to partake in pampering these loving little animals with bathing & hair brushing private sessions!

Guided Tours

A well-trained guide will take you on an informative and detailed tour of the animal shelter explaining everything you need to know about each and every animal available, as well as answering all your questions. The guided tour is available for both small and large groups upon request.

Schools, Summer Camps, and Groups

Special prices and packages for schools, big groups and events. Please call us for more information.

Feeding the Animals

Feeding the animals is one of the greatest way to communicate and create an intimate bond with the animal. Because we know what should be fed to them, buy the animal snack bag prepared every day from our cafeteria.
