  • Amazing place. Beautiful wildlife. Nice tucked away and peaceful. There were many Flamingos. So beautiful. The peacocks there are another amazing animal. There was a black swan, owls, ducks, and leopards. A nice sitting area and lots of pretty flowers and plants to see as well. Nice, affordable activity to do in Nassau, Bahamas if you like animals or want to do something different.
  • Pretty nice place to visit. Great walk about and fun to see all the animals.
