Go early to see the flamingo show (it was around 10:00 the day we went)---the flamingos march and dance beautifully. Then after that was the feeding of the lorries--amazing!! You go in the cage and these exotic, exquisite birds land on you and eat from you hand. The paths are great and other animals are awesome. Great visit!

This is a good little zoo for kids (and adults) ....quite a variety of birds and animals. The flamingo show is a hoot!! Didn't stay for the other show/feeding b/c it started raining. Hard to get to by bus...a hike out to catch the bus, but the 12b bus will take you right there. The only real negative is it... More

Went there today, took a bus ride walk about 1 mile, the cost was $15.00 a head. A lot of over grown trees, dead plants, birds in cages, two monkeys, a couple of ducks. The flamingo show was cute. Not worth $15.00.

We did this as part of a cruise ship excursion and it was a lot of fun. The Marching Flamingos were fun to see. Feeding the Lory Parrots was really a great experience. They would land right on you and eat right from your hand, sometimes more than one would land on you at a time! The foliage around the... More

We last visited when our oldest was 3 (now 11). For the kids it is a great little Zoo. For the kids, the two highlights are always the lorikeet feeding and the flamingo show. This time even the 10 month old was smiling the entire time. Sadly the jaguar passed away this year. Also many of the cages were being... More

We went to the zoo on a cruise shore excursion. It was a great, simple day. We really enjoyed feeding the birds for free, got some great pictures. Then saw the flamingo show. It was a nice relaxing trip. Be sure to bring cash for the snack bar or to buy pictures or souvenirs. Gift shop only takes credit card... More

We have been here twice and never disappointed, the shows with the marching flamingos is spectacular and the entrance to the zoo is affordable, make sure you got your cameras ready for those shots and enjoy the afternoon. Bring water since it gets hot and enjoy the feeding the birds with rotten apples, they love it and you can take... More

Our daughter was tired from being so busy on our cruise so we opted for a low key Sight seeing tour of Nassau with a stop at Ardastra Gardens, so glad we did it is a small intimate zoo with 40 or so exhibits, the highlight being the Marching Flamingos, our daughter got picked to go inside the enclosure with...

We went to Ardastra Gardens Zoo on a whim, because we wanted to see a few tropical animals, and they have bunnies - which my wife simply loves. The zoo is small and intimate - but there's a lot to do, and don't be fooled by the size - there's plenty of animals to see. You'll be able to walk... More
