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 wildcat is a small cat native to Europe, the western part of Asia, and Africa. They physically resemble a domesticated cat in most aspects and have the same range of vocalizations. Wildcats typically breed only once a year.
