We got there when it opened and had the place to ourselves for the first hour. The peacock showed off for me--fanning his feathers and circling around--which made a beautiful photo op! They were very informative and interesting. The flamingo show was okay but the bird feeding was fantastic. They took good photos of that that were not cost prohibitive!... More

This property has definitely seen better years, but is still worth a visit. It has a retro quirky vibe with peacocks wandering about and small but well kept gardens of popular local and regional tree species. The flamingo march is the highlight of the zoo's offerings. Presently the animals are limited to birds, small monkeys, a few reptiles and a... More

My girlfriends and I visited Nassau and we when on this tour. I my honest opinion there's nothing impressive about this garden and zoo. We watch a flamingo march show with was less than impressive. Though the garden was beautiful everything was average

This was a small but friendly zoo. Not a lot of animals but what they did have we enjoyed. Feeding the parrots and our son loved the marching flamingos.

The Zoo is rather small but well set up. You can see some different animals than state side zoos. The flamingos are awesome and definitely the big drawing card. Almost a must see if you have children that love animals. My daughter loved it.

Our family of 5 (three kids: 20, 17 and 10) visited Ardastra Gardens on our recent Bahamian cruise. We enjoyed the zoo's coziness and the bright tropical colors of the foliage and birds. Highlights include being able to walk among the flamingoes and see the macaws and parrots up close. Meandering walkways (some are not wheelchair/stroller friendly) take visitors into... More

I gave this an average rating even though my title is "2 hours well spent" . That's because I'm feeling kind-of torn as to how to advise you...the reader. If you like to take vibrant photos of beautiful flamingos and macaws then this attraction is very good. If you want to do something that is really fun and fills up... More
