Like everywhere in Bahamas, the animals are treated with such care and consideration! the flamingos and peacocks roam the grounds uncaged! Don't miss the "marching flamingos" show, truly unique!!
I have mixed feelings about zoos in general. The fact that animals are confined to small places is sometimes sad to me. One macaw in special, a new addition to the zoo, looked startled and nervous... It is a bit run-down, and the feeders are sometimes careless and even a little aggressive with the animals. The good thing is the... More
We enjoyed out visit here. Two hours or so is enough time to allow including the events - parrot feeding and the flamingo 'march' both of which we enjoyed. The gardens are wonderful - a sub tropical jungle with lovely plants. The animals and birds aren't plentiful but are interesting to see, There is a small snack bar and gift... More
It is just the right size, and we enjoyed that it was mostly animals that are native to the Bahamas. My 3 year old son enjoyed seeing the flamingos up close and exploring the trails in the gardens which he aptly named "the jungle".
While on a short cruise we docked at Nassau in the Bahamas. Since I live at the beach my daughter-in-Law and I decided to do a City Tour and Ardastra Garden Tour rather than visit a beach!

Our student radio station was in town doing a travel show and our horse back riding plans got canceled. We were disappointed and then a local told us about Ardastra. This was a last minute change of plans but I am happy we did it. The zoo has most of your typical animals, but its different from zoos here in... More
The Gardens was a great place to take our kids while docked in Nassau. It wasn't a very big zoo, and we weren't expecting it to be anything like the Philadelphia zoo or any other bigger zoo, but it was just as interesting and beautiful!! The admission fee was very reasonable too, after all, it is the only zoo in... More
We went to Ardastra Gardens as a shore excursion on our cruise. We only had an hour and a half to look around and we wished we had more time. The zoo is beautiful with lots of flowers, trees and a pond that gives you the feeling that you are walking through a jungle. The flamingos are the highlight of... More
