Ardastra Gardens, Zoo And Conservation Centre - Review
Ardastra Gardens, Zoo and Conservation Center is the first zoo in Nassau -established in 1982 by Mr. Norman Solomon. The Zoo is home to the Caribbean Flamingo- the national bird of the Bahamas that were brought here in the 1950’s to breed the species that was almost on the verge on being endangered.
The gardens date back to the 1930’s and were the brainchild of Hedley Vivian Edwards- a Jamaican horticulturist.
Today, the zoo is home to 300 animals that thrive here amidst the gorgeous landscaped gardens. The tranquil atmosphere completes the charm of the place and if you are a nature lover, the place promises to offer a peaceful time. When here don’t forget to feed the Parrots- a must if you are visiting with children!

Ardastra Gardens, Zoo And Conservation Centre, Nassau Reviews
We loved it! My daughter loves flamingos and got to be a trainer. It was cute. We had a lit of fun and thought the zoo was nice, animals were well cared for. The nicest thing though was there were local school children that were integral parts of the experience. One of them spoke at the flamingo show and others were around the zoo and spoke to guests about other animals and answered questions. They were extremely knowlegeable and well spoken.
Had a great time. Friendly staff and we had a blast hand feeding the birds. My son was chosen to be in the flamingo show. A fun way to spend the day ashore.
Nice zoological experience with a laid back Bahamian vibe. Fun for the kids with animal "experiences" such as parrot feeding, flamingo marching shows, and casual learning. Worth a trip for families or bird lovers in need of a change of pace from typical beach activities.
This this is an amazing little Zoo in the heart of the Bahamas. What's so amazing about this is you can get so close to the animals and take such good pictures. Get an idea of how they really look like. My daughter and I loved going here even though it rained so hard on us.
Please continue to support the zoo! I took my class to visit on a field trip. The children enjoyed themselves and the staff was so welcoming and accommodating.
