I came to Ardastra Gardens during a cruise ship stopover when the excursion I had planned was suddenly cancelled. My friend and I wanted to see more of the city on the way, so even though our cruise handlers insisted it was too far to walk (don't believe them) we walked along the path that goes from the British Colonial...

We had a visit to the zoo - pretty small - there was a display of dancing pink flamingos - kinda cute !!!Saw lots of birds and usual zoo animals - did not need much time to do the whole zoo - so plan to do it easily in half a day.

Great visit to the zoo, the close interaction with the flamingos and parrots was excellent, something that you couldn't do here in Northern Ireland, staff were helpful and friendly and pictures we got done at the zoo were great too, something different to do with the kids while on holiday.

Two adults and two children visited this attraction one morning in Nassau. The children especially were enchanted with the various animals, many of which they had only seen photos of previously. The plants were lovely and I tagged a life bird for me, a red legged thrush! Great stop for those who love the natural world. If you go, do... More

Very nice place for a great price. We visit the zoo/gardens on Easter Monday. It was a very enjoyable way to spend our first day in Nassau. We saw the world famous marching flamingo show, enjoyed feeding the lory parrots, and even got to take pictures with the Easter Bunny. I would recommend a stop at this Zoo/Gardens during your...

I was not overly impressed with this place. It seemed it could really use a facelift. The flamingo show was pretty lame. The employees were really nice and helpful.

Took a tour of the Ardastra gardens and zoo when we were in Nassau. The Gardens and plants were totally amazing. Also saw lots of birds, including flamingos, parrots and peacocks! Worth a visit!

This little zoo was full of beautiful birds, there were other animals too and a very nice petting zoo for children. But the highlight was the birds. Toby the Cockatoo, the Lorikeets that you get to feed, Peacocks, and of course the trained Flamingoes. Did you know a group of Flamingos is a "Flamboyance"? Well they sure were flamboyant and...

Not what we are used to and could use some touch ups, especially the uneven rocky walking paths, a stroller nightmare!! But the people were nice and the animals were very interesting. The flamingo show was fun and I got to pose with them up close and personal. Water wasn't working well so kinda grossed out thinking about so many... More
