Had the #10 bus drop us off Bay St and walked maybe 10 minutes to a combo zoo and botanical garden. It was kept up nicely with many native birds including a black swan. My wife is addicted to flamingos, so that was a highlight to be able to walk among them. Took a break at the snack bar, walked back down the road and got picked up by #10 to go back to our abode.

We recently enjoyed a family cruise in the Caribbean, and one of the stops was Nassau. When looking for something to do with our five year old other than the beach, we debated between a dolphin swim and Ardastra Gardens. Based on the reviews we chose Adrastra and are so happy we did. It's about $15US from the port each way, and on the day we went it wasn't very crowded - our son got to feed the lorry birds as many times as he wanted, and absolutely loved getting to walk among the flamingos. The staff were friendly and very knowledgeable, offering extra information about the animals and lots of extra apples for our son to feed the birds. A definite highlight of our trip!

My family and I visited Nassau for 7 days and decided to stop here. This is a very quaint zoo and conservatory. We drove there with our rental car and it was easy to find. There’s a big parking lot that you can park in for free. Like so many of the reviewers have stated, it’s a fairly small place but you can tell the animals are well cared for and the employees definitely love them. It’s about $20 a person but the fee goes to support the animals (many are rescues) so it’s worth it. Right away when we entered we were greeted by the most friendly guy. I regret not catching his name but he was so warm and kind. He pointed us in the direction of the start of the path. Along the way we checked out the monkeys, parrots, flamingos, all types of birds, different plants and trees. There was another employee who walked with us and told us all the names of the animals. We visited for about an hour and the kids had a great time. The only bummer was that we missed the feedings and showed but it was still fun. If you’re on the island and have children or teens, this is a hidden gem and definitely worth a visit to support them.

It poured rain the day we visited so there weren't many people. We got some real close up experiences with the animals. Highlights were feeding the lory parrots, the marching flamingos, the flamingos in the wild, and peacocks and parrots that are out in the open around the center.

It had a lot of bird varieties a few pigs and of course the flamongos, which roam free. Small and easily navigated. Staff was very friendly.
