"Amazing! !!"
Reviewed 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?

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!"
Reviewed 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"
Reviewed 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"
Reviewed 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.

"Absolutely marvelous!!!"

We celebrated our daughter's birthday here on April 30th, 2016,purchasing the VIP pass as well as a pass to visit with the incredible family of sloths that reside here...From the moment we entered the zoo, we were greeted by friendly and incredibly informative guides, and it was immediately clear that education, not exploitation is key at Promised Land Zoo. In our VIP encounter, we held a baby Vietnamese Pot Bellied pig, a baby kangaroo, and a veiled chameleon, and then encountered an African Bull Fog, a striped opossum (very rare, indeed), an African Armadillo, a gorgeous Tegu, a prairie dog, and a python in the Animal Encounter presentation. Unlike other such presentation I've been to in other zoos, at Promised Land your basic ticket includes these animal encounters, and visitors not only get to see animals up close while learning about them, they may also move up one or two at a time to gently touch an animal's back while a zoo keeper holds them. At Promised Land, one is able to get much closer to animals than at other zoos: we fed and pet a male kangaroo, two tiny deer, a young camel, and various other hooved creatures....Enough cannot be said for the encounter with the sloths---if you can afford it, this is worth every single penny and more...All in all, one of the best days ever!!! Thank you so very much, Promised Land Zoo--we will be back!!!

Used a Groupon for this and really enjoyed it. Lots of baby animals to feed. The parakeets were very cute. My sister had them all over her. Would be great for kids.

Get there when they open so the animals are hungry. We were lucky enough on our visit that a baby sloth had been born during the night. The bird habitat is fun to go in. The show and the walk through were great fun.
