    What to Expect
    Make your way to the Ardastra Gardens, Zoo and Conservation Center, located just a few minutes' drive from downtown Nassau. Your admission ticket is good for opening hours, between 9am and 5pm daily. The center was created by Jamaican horticulturist Hedley Edwards, who later brought the famous Caribbean flamingos from the southern Bahamas as a contrast to the abundant greenery.

    Explore the 4 acres (1.6 hectares) of verdant plant life and tropical gardens at your own pace. Take a break on a limestone bench hidden in a secluded corner, cross a footbridge as a kingfisher wades below and snap photos of the informal gardens. Watch the Bahamian ducks and swans paddle around the pond as freshwater turtles sun themselves on the rocks. While walking the Gardens, friendly and informed staff will answer questions while you explore. 

    Light refreshments are available at the canteen, and there is a gift shop featuring garden- and nature-themed souvenirs. 

    Your ticket includes admission to the 'Flamingo Experience', occurring at 10:30am, 2pm and 4pm daily and featuring the Bahamas' National Bird, the Caribbean Flamingo.

    It was raining for most of our visit, but the zoo was easy to find. It is apparent that it was probably very nice when it was initially built, however, it could use some maintenance. There is a variety of animals (goats, pigs, birds, even a monkey) but, we were a little

    We enjoyed the interraction with feeding the birds and would visit again if we ever come back with our kids. We thought it was well worth the money spent.

    We went to the zoo as a large family. Got a group rate. Excellent deal. Small zoo. Beautiful flamingos. Kids fed the parrots and loved it. Saw some orchids in the wild.

    This is a good place too take smaller children to. they will get up close to not only Pink Flamingos, but other birds also. if you would like to see the Flamingo circus call ahead for schedules of time so you do not have to wait 2 hours for it. There are other animals also. Just

    I'm usually a little leery of zoos as they can be sad or depressing. This was not. It's a very sweet little zoo,
