About Ardastra Gardens, Zoo And Conservation Centre, Nassau

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.

Ardastra Gardens, Zoo And Conservation Centre, Nassau Reviews - Write a Review

  • The animals looked like they were well taken care of and they have a decent amount to see. For the money we soent, i thought there could have been more though. Really liked the parrot feeding and flamenco show. We were there at the end of the day so we didn't get as much time there as we wanted.

  • Looks very nice. The money I spent was worth it for me and the family to get out and do some animal spotting. Glad I came here, its recommended.

  • Nice but small place If you have chance to come during feeding it is the best moment.You can participate in the feeding inside the cage so it’s very funny for children’s and adults as well.

  • Tranquil, a true escape from the humdrum of the city. Just enjoy the sounds of nature and the beautiful animals

  • Not really many different types of animals. There is the ability to feed the birds apples which I thought was neat. Flamingos also roam free, they're fairly docile. Other than that,there's nothing special. Its just an overall mediocre zoo.
