Ardastra Gardens, Zoo & Conservation Centre, Nassau
The only zoo in the Bahamas started as a nature preserve in the 1950’s. Over the years, Ardastra Gardens & Zoo evolved, adding a tropical garden, a conservation center for Caribbean flamingos, and a small zoo with a handful of birds, reptiles and mammals. The four-acre zoo is filled with the colors and fragrances of its tropical gardens, which feature paths among tamarind, West Indies Mahogany and Indian banyan trees, amid the abundant blooms of yellow elder and frangipani. Visitors can see flamingos, iguanas and lemurs, while enjoying interactive experiences like feeding the lory parrots and playing with the rabbits in the petting zoo.

Few can resist the call of the wild, especially when that wild is presented in such pristine surroundings. Ardastra Gardens, Zoo & Conservation Center in Nassau has been a spreading ground for zoological education since it opened in 1937.

Ardastra Gardens

About 10 minutes from downtown Nassau, this walkable property is home to both lush tropical gardens and the Bahamas’ first zoo. More than 130 creatures live here, including African monkeys, Madagascan lemurs and many colorful bird species like macaws and rainbow lorikeets—some of which you can feed by hand. The star attractions, though, are the resident hordes of free-roaming, bright-pink Caribbean flamingos, who perform in several choreographed shows each day.
