Marching flamingos? These national birds give a parading performance at Ardastra daily at 10:30, 2:10, and 4:10. The brilliant pink birds are a delight—especially for children, who can walk among the flamingos after the show. The zoo, with more than 5 acres of tropical greenery and ponds, also has an aviary of rare tropical birds including the bright green Bahama parrot, native Bahamian creatures such as rock iguanas and the little (and harmless) Bahamian boa constrictors,
and a global collection of small animals.

Though not as well funded as the San Diego, San Antonio or Miami Zoos, Ardastra is a refreshing change to the hectic markets and casinos of the Bahamas. The staff shows how dedicated they are and what a great job they do with little funding. I will go back again.
