  • Nice little zoo with mostly birds. The marching flamingo show was cool. Fun to feed the parrots. Would be 5 stars but the price of entry is too high. $18.75 for an adult for what only really takes an hour to walk through.
  • We had such a terrific time! Thank you! I think the employees are the friendliest and most helpful that I have ever experienced!! Clean and well kept for all the animals. Beautiful flowers too! A definite visit location when visiting Nassau!! Hope to go back with my grandchildren next time visiting the Bahamas 💗
