This was awesome-so primitive and natural. Not too many animals, but the grounds are fascinating. The Flamingo Show was great fun and feeding the parrots was phenomenal.

Our 1 year old grandson really enjoyed seeing the flamingos! He also learned to make the noises of the peacocks that were freely roaming the grounds! If we ever return to the Bahamas, we would definitely come back!

Small but lovely place to wonder around and see the animals. Two shows on the flamingos and small parrots were very cool. Friendly staff and easy to get to with ample parking. Would visit again.

Back in March, the Collins’ family took an amazing, fun-filled Bahamas cruise aboard the Carnival Liberty. The first port of call was the infamous city of Nassau. While the port itself was very unappealing, smelling of rotten trash and urine, we had the opportunity to...More

Really lovely morning or afternoon activity, the flamingos are so sweet and awesome to feed the parrots. The humane society is just accross the road, so on your way out go give the dogs and cats some love and a small donation!

We signed up to go to Ardastra as an excursion from a cruise we were on as a way to do something outside that the kids would enjoy. The center is a very unassuming and relaxing area with lots of vegetation. Most of the walkways...More

Our general areas and pathways are wheel chair accessible, though our bathrooms are not. A stroller can definitely work on our grounds! We hope to see you soon!
