Ardastra Gardens, Zoo & Conservation Center

Gardens in Nassau

This lush 4 acre tropical garden contains a small zoo, home to around 180 animals of 60 different species. Crowd-pleasers include the Madagascan lemurs and three endangered Bahamian boa constrictors, but the undisputed highlight is the small regiment of marching West Indian flamingos, which strut their stuff at 10:30am, 2:15pm and 4pm daily. Pint-sized visitors will also thrill at feeding the lory parrots by hand, even as they're used for convenient perches.
