Overview
Visit the Ardastra Gardens, Zoo and Conservation Centre with this all-inclusive admission ticket. Stroll through 4 acres (1.6 hectares) of verdant gardens, home to native mammals, reptiles and more than two hundred bird species. This 80-year-old refuge is home to specimens of the Caribbean Flamingo, the Bahamas' Native Bird. Get a chance to hand-feed South Pacific Lory Parrots and watch 'The Flamingo Experience' featuring the featured native birds.
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.

Good Value for the Price Paid

We had read the Trip Advisor reviews and had mixed expectations about our visit here while on a recent cruise. However, we wanted something different to do in Nassau this time, so we gave it a try. We were pleasantly surprised. There is more to...More

Worth the visit

If you're looking for an all day experience, this probably isn't the place for you. But if you've got some time at the beginning of your day (1-2.5 hours) and you happen to not be on paradise island, it's definitely worth the trip. It's not...More

Should have been a sheep & followed everyone to Atlantis.

The idea of visiting the zoo had my family excited, as my children love to see various animals, and we wanted to avoid the crowd heading to Atlantis. I knew the experience would be less than par right from the moment our tour guide (woman...More

Pathetic, Dirty and a WASTE of Money

On a Disney cruise and this looked like a nice relaxing way to spend a few hours. I was wrong. Did they like kill and eat all the animals?? Cages empty, cages dirty, park dirty. The lame bird show was the only small highlight -...More

City Tour and Ardasta Gardens

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
