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.

The Indian peacock has dazzling blue and green plumage. These feathers, 1.5 meters long, are marked with eye spots, best seen when a peacock fans his tail.

A ferret is a small, furry creature with a cone-shaped nose, long tail and a long, pear-shaped body with short legs and long claws. The vast majority of ferrets are the domesticated variety.
During the day they sleep. During the winter, ferrets will stay underground for up to a week at a time.

How about feeding some Alpacas?
Close encounters with the animals are of great learning benefit. Visitors can learn about animals, understand conservation issues and make connections between themselves and the natural world.
