    What to Expect
    Make your way to the Ardastra Gardens, Zoo and Conservation Center, located just a few minutes' drive from downtown Nassau. Your admission ticket is good for opening hours, between 9am and 5pm daily. The center was created by Jamaican horticulturist Hedley Edwards, who later brought the famous Caribbean flamingos from the southern Bahamas as a contrast to the abundant greenery.

    Explore the 4 acres (1.6 hectares) of verdant plant life and tropical gardens at your own pace. Take a break on a limestone bench hidden in a secluded corner, cross a footbridge as a kingfisher wades below and snap photos of the informal gardens. Watch the Bahamian ducks and swans paddle around the pond as freshwater turtles sun themselves on the rocks. While walking the Gardens, friendly and informed staff will answer questions while you explore. 

    Light refreshments are available at the canteen, and there is a gift shop featuring garden- and nature-themed souvenirs. 

    Your ticket includes admission to the 'Flamingo Experience', occurring at 10:30am, 2pm and 4pm daily and featuring the Bahamas' National Bird, the Caribbean Flamingo.

    Our 1 year old grandson really enjoyed seeing the flamingos! He also learned to make the noises of the peacocks that were freely roaming the grounds! If we ever return to the Bahamas, we would definitely come back!

    We loved going here! They had many animals to see and interact with, plus the price was very fair. Employees were very nice and informative.

    Back in March, the Collins’ family took an amazing, fun-filled Bahamas cruise aboard the Carnival Liberty. The first port of call was the infamous city of Nassau. While the port itself was very unappealing, smelling of rotten trash and urine, we had the opportunity to take a

    We signed up to go to Ardastra as an excursion from a cruise we were on as a way to do something outside that the kids would enjoy. The center is a very unassuming and relaxing area with lots of vegetation. Most of the walkways are wide enough and on level ground so that
