Ardastra Gardens, Zoo & Conservation Centre Admission Ticket
From US$18.75
Lowest Price Guaranteed
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.

Fun excursion

Small, well maintained zoo and gardens. Lovely visit, no lines, up close with many of the animals. Flamingos and peacocks walk freely among the visitors.

Nice trip for a small zoo

Went here as part of a cruise tour and enjoyed our time while visiting. Got to see different wildlife and feed the birds and watch flamingos dance and perform for you. A nice zoo but don't come here if you are expecting a San Diego...More

A little hidden gem

Did not know exactly what to expect, but once there, found that it is a beautiful little zoo hidden away. I fed the birds, petted a snake (yep!) and attended a Flamingo show. Awesome!

Fun Cruise excursion

Went here on a NCL cruise excursion, and we enjoyed our visit. Great flora and fauna. Showcase local plants and animals. My 2 y/o loved the flamingo show. Bathrooms, snack stand and gift shop on site. Not huge but enough for little ones.

Loved this place

We visited in October 2018. We had our 100 year old traveling friend with us and she used an electric wheelchair. The entire place was accessible and lovely. Just seeing all the flamingos made it worth it, but feeding the parrots was equally fun and...More

The Botanical gardens are just down the road from Ardastra, but from what I could tell, there wasn't much to it. It looked more like an open area with paths and a few water features. I never saw an "entrance" or anywhere... More

I'd estimate that it's about 2 miles. You could walk it, but it was hot when we were there. We took a cab there and walked back with several stops for adventure along the way - drinks at Twin Brothers, the beach for a... More
