Benghazi Zoo or Al Fuwayhat is a zoo and tourist park in the city of Benghazi, Libya. In 1991, Italian firm Cairtieri Trieste signed a $2 million contract to supply a low draught boat named Al-Berka to give tourist excursions on the lagoon inside the park.

Benghazi Nature Reserve
Less than 10 miles north of Benghazi on the northeastern Libyan coast is the Benghazi Nature Reserve, a popular pit-stop for migratory waterbirds. The reserve includes a stretch of sandy coastline with dunes and salt marshes, as well as the Ayn Zayanah Lagoon. The latter is fed by 10 springs and attracts flamingos in the winter months. Although nominally protected, the area is also used for fishing, recreation and as a garbage dump.
