Welcome to Ardastra Gardens, Zoo & Conservation Center

Ardastra Gardens, Zoo & Conservation Center

Visit the Bahamas' only zoo and see the renowned marching flamingo shows. Visitors can even encounter Bahamian boa constrictors, raptors and parrots as their trainers walk them along pathways throughout the zoo. The natural setting of Ardastra Gardens allows many of the birds to roam freely and it is not uncommon to find parrots and peacocks at your feet. Other residents at the zoo include two jaguars, great horned owls, lemurs, monkeys and even a pot-bellied pig. The zoo is only a few minutes drive from Nassau on Paradise Island.
