"My experience at the zoo"
June, 2016
The zoo didn't cost a lot, and they had a lot of animals. My favorite was the screaming goats.
Tip: 1. The zoo owns one of the largest snakes in the US.

"Amazing! !!"
December, 2015
The Promise Land Zoo was simply amazing! You are allowed to get up and close to the animals. You can feed a variety of animals and there are interactions with some of the animals. While on my visit I did the sloth interaction, and it was awesome!! An animal lovers paradise. I will definitely be going back!
Tip: Be prepared to be there awhile if you love animals?

"Take a step into fun land"
October, 2015
Branson's Promised Land Zoo is the perfect spot to take the kiddos and enjoy some family time. Each of us had an amazing time feeding the parakeets was an experience my family tells friends about still months later. The babies in the zoo are so sweet and we made life long memories the day we chose to stop in. Great place to go and experience animals, very hands on.
Tip: Wash your hands before and after visiting, it keeps the animals and yourself safe.

"Absolutely Fantastic!"
July, 2015
Everyone in our group loved this place. Yes it's a smaller Zoo, but you can actually pet and feed the animals! They are sooo cute and I got to bottle feed baby kangaroos and a camel on our last visit. We will be back next time to Branson! Oh, and loved the shows too.
Tip: Check the show and feeding times.

"Good family fun"
March, 2015
its a smaller zoo that doesn't take long to get through. I have a 6, 3 and a 5 month old and they really enjoyed it. They have bottle feeding that the kids can do and they have animal shows throughout the day and the kids can ask questions and pet all of the animals. You are able to feed all of the animals there except for the monkeys and carnivores. My husband and I did the live animal interaction and we loved it the trainer is very informative and you can take as many pictures as you want. The thing that I loved the most is that they have scripture everywhere and all the proceeds go back to the animals. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is that it's not handicapped accessible or stroller accessible. Instead of having some type of path it's all wood chips so it makes it difficult to push a stroller or a wheelchair around especially because it's very hilly. Overall I would and have recommended this to other people
Tip: Hard to push strollers and wheelchairs around. If you are confined to a wheelchair and can't use a cain or walker then I wouldn't recommend going. Also it' has a lot of hills so if you have bad knees take that into consideration. On the plus must do the animal encounter and the bottle feeding

"Small but fun"
March, 2015
This zoo is probably one of the smallest that we've visited and a bit pricey for its size BUT the kids had a good time and thats what counts! The best part is the feeding of the baby animals and the little "show and tell" where you can actually touch each animal that is brought out. It only took us about an hour to walk the entire zoo, including the feeding and show.

This was a sad sad "zoo". We did the whole foot path in 9 minutes. All of the animals were small (babies?). There was a Bengal tiger which was cool. And the parakeet paradise was fun. Other then that it was pretty much a waste of $40. My 2 year old who loves animals almost fell asleep in the stroller he was so bored. :/

My family had an awesome time at the zoo this weekend. The weather was great and the wildlife was entertaining for me and my daughters. I have to send a special thanks to my host Jungle Josh who allowed us to encounter a baby kangaroo and also a baby sloth. They were so cute and cuddly. The staff was very helpful and very knowledgeable. We had personal encounters. Got to bottle feed a camel, cows, and goats truly amazing experience.

My young adult kids were the main reason we stopped at this small zoo located on Shepherd of the Hills Expressway in Branson. The zoo includes quite a few animals, many of which are endangered in their natural habitat. Those include numerous antelope, zebra, kangaroo, a tiger, a lion, a few other cats, baboons, spider monkeys, lemurs, deer, prairie dogs, and porcupines. The live animal show was enjoyable and allows visitors to touch and pet various creatures. However, the best part of the visit is the Parakeet Paradise, an enclosure into which visitors can go and feed the parakeets, which probably number a hundred or more. Each ticket entitles one to a free parakeet feeding stick -- peanut butter smeared on the end and dipped into birdseed. You can spend as much time inside as you want; typically it takes 10-15 minutes to coax birds onto the feeding stick and empty it. Fun and up close with a bunch of birds. However, the price is a bit steep for the number of animals you see.

I haven't been to a zoo in ages but I'm SO glad that my girlfriend and I went here. The location was ideal, the staff was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and all the animals were adorable. We did pay the extra money to get an up close and personal experience with the animals. It was well worth it! Plus I got to interact with animals that I've never seen before. The zoo itself is small but there are lots of fun and exciting animals there. This zoo would be perfect for all ages! The zoo has a great pre-show where they introduce animals to you, tell you about them and allow you to touch, pet/feel them all if you want. My favorite part was the bird house where we got to feed all the beautiful birds ourselves!

This place has a lot of different animals to see. There's a few to look at in the entrance, and a nice petting zoo area. Watch for animal droppings! LOL :). We liked getting to feed the goats, the camel, piggies, etc.. This was a great way to get out of the car, stretch our legs, and get some fresh air after a long drive... Then, we finished our tour by driving through their outdoor zoo area. There were a LOT of animals to see out there, and we got some great photos simply because they are curious about the vehicles and come right up to the windows. We kept ours rolled up as instructed, but it was still very neat to be so close.. This is a bit pricey, BUT if you think of the cost of caring for all of these animals then you can understand why they charge what they do.. Just like most animal places..
