Ardastra Gardens, Zoo & Conservation Centre

Map
West Bay St., one mile west of downtown, Nassau, New Providence Island, , Bahamas

The only zoo in the Bahamas, Ardastra relies on donations to keep its operation running. It has a surprising variety of animals, from a Vietnamese pot-bellied pig to a jaguar. But the real reason to visit: 60 trained flamingos march together in three shows daily, and when they're not onstage, they roam freely around the grounds.
