Animal Farm

Animals are an undeniable part of nature, and humans must learn to coexist with them. It is imperative that we instill a love and appreciation for nature and animals in our children from a very young age. This will help to mitigate the challenges animals face, ultimately reducing the risk of extinction. By educating our children in this manner, we can foster a generation that is mindful of the natural world and the importance of preserving it. This will be invaluable for future generations and the planet as a whole.

Therefore, Matinabad Eco Resort has tried to provide a platform for children and adults to be friends with these lovely creatures of God by raising and living together with animals such as ostriches, camels, goats, horses, etc. Follow along with the introduction of Matinabad eco-camp animals.


Ostrich is the main animal of Matinabad. Ostrich breeding in Matinabad has started since the beginning of the construction of this complex. Ostrich has many properties for humans, and you only need to do a short research to find these useful properties. Ostriches are very beneficial, from their feathers to eggs, oil, etc., but don’t worry, Matinabad ostriches are not bred for this purpose, and they live a comfortable and carefree life in this camp.
You can see the ostriches of this collection up close and learn everything about this beautiful animal whose eyes mesmerize you. Playing with baby ostriches in the pristine desert area of Eco Camp will surely thrill you, so don’t miss this free experience.


Camels have long been recognized as a symbol of the desert, particularly for their ability to endure extended periods of time without food or water. Historically, camels have been utilized as a reliable mode of transportation, enabling individuals to traverse vast distances across arid regions. This is due to their unique physiology, which allows them to store water and fat in their hump, thus enabling them to survive without sustenance for several days. The practicality of camels as a means of transportation has been recognized for centuries, and it remains a viable option for individuals seeking to navigate the challenging terrain of the desert.

Today, camels have been replaced by gasoline and electric cars that have more speed and facilities. If you want to experience camel riding like the caravans that used to go to the Silk Road for trade, come to Matinabad Eco Resort.
The camels of Matinabad are in perfect health, and the smile does not disappear from their lips. Camel riding in the desert is one of the non-free activities of Eco Camp. Fifteen minutes of camel riding will have a significant effect on your mood. Coexistence with nature is what keeps you away from depression and does not let sadness enter your heart.

Horse and Donkey

In Matinabad, horses and donkeys are also kept as domestic animals, providing an opportunity to observe them up close and interact with them.


Matinabad Eco Camp is home to several playful animals, including sheep. These sheep are fed on organic products, which contributes to their good health and plump appearance. It is worth noting that all parts of the sheep can be utilized, similar to ostriches. Typically, sheep are kept in large herds, and their breeding is determined by their intended use. Two primary methods of sheep breeding exist, and the choice between them is based on the purpose for which the sheep will be used.

In the novel approach, the shepherd procures a mother sheep, and subsequently multiplies the offspring, while in the breeding technique, the shepherd purchases young lambs weighing less than 30 kilograms, and later sells them once they have achieved the desired weight. The latter approach appears to be more suitable for commercial purposes, as it allows for greater flexibility in terms of choosing the desired weight and selling the animals accordingly. Conversely, the former approach may be more appropriate for a self-sufficient farm, as it enables the shepherd to maintain a self-sustaining flock.

Long-eared Goat

The long-eared goat is one of the most special animals in Matinabad, which you can see in very few places. The long-eared goat is on display at Matinabad Eco Camp to learn more about desert and rural animal species. Some long-eared goat breeds are so rare that there are only 100 of them in the world. In the 80s, there were two rare long-eared goats in Iran that were taken to Kashan for preservation. If you would like to see a long-eared goat up close, you can book your stay at Eco Camp right now.


Goat milk is one of the important products of goats that are offered to humans. Goat’s milk is much more useful than cow’s milk. As you know, access to goat milk is much more difficult in Iran, and the dairy products obtained from this milk are more expensive.
Goat milk is easily digestible and its protein and vitamins are easily absorbed by the body. Apart from these, it can be said that Matinabad goats are the most active animals in this collection because they are very lively.

Birds (chickens, roosters and pigeons)

The chickens and roosters of Matinabad are together like legendary lovers and are having a good time. One of the most important products of Matinabad chickens is local and organic eggs.
