Ardastra Gardens, Zoo & Conservation Centre Admission Ticket

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    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.

    This Zoo is a very amasing place .It's not big-but nice. You can take pictures with anymails and feed the birds. It's not fare from Fish Fry.

    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

    It’s about 20 min walk maybe. It’s better to get a taxi there.
