Spent the afternoon wandering around, there is everything from fish and birds to monkeys. Feeding the birds and watching the flamingos was so fun. If you like tropical animals this is a must!

This is by no means the same caliber as the San Diego Zoo, but it was very enjoyable. We fed the Lorikeets and saw the flamingo show. The staff are courteous and helpful. Nassau was one of the ports of call on the cruise and...More

We are members of the zoo and we love it. My son really likes to feed the Lorikeets and the staff takes their time to carefully explain the history of the animals and the zoo.

Our family was not all that impressed with the Gardens/zoo. There are only a handful of animals: pigs, a raccoon, iguana, flamingos, monkeys, birds, snakes, and turtles. The tour guide wanted the group to stay together.More

We were a little hesitant because we had been told it was a little run down. It isn't an amazing zoo but there are plenty of animals and gardens to see. BUT the highlight was walking right along side the flamingos and watching their show....More

We had a fun time at the zoo. The Marching Flamingos were THE BEST! All the staff were friendly and courteous.
