"My experience at the zoo"
Reviewed 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! !!"
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?

"Take a step into fun land"
Reviewed 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!"
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.

"Great start to our Branson visit"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed July 23, 2016 NEW

Stopped here on our first day in Branson. Bought the VIP Plus admission...kinda pricey but worth it. Being the wife and daughter love cats We got to play with the Caracal Kittens for about 20 mins with this ticket..was great ! Parakeets were cool, thought the stick with seed was very small, stick was size of pencil with small eraser size of seed and peanut butter. Bottle feeding the animals was cool, kids enjoyed feeding the cows, goats and camel. VIP encounter was included in our ticket as well and got to hold baby kangaroo, bearded dragon and something else the name escapes me. But the zoo is small and expanding. Worth a stop in if you have small kids to tweens.

Reviewed July 22, 2016 NEW

My family and I visited two zoos while in Branson. One was so sad and the animals were so sad looking that I wanted to cal the authorities. Then we came to The Promised land Zoo, it was amazing. The animals looked happy and very well cared for. We were so impressed with the place that we went back a second day and will go back this weekend. They were just the nicest people too.

"Unhappy animals "
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed July 21, 2016 NEW

When looking at things to do in Branson, I stumbled upon the Promised Land Zoo and figured it would be a fun experience considering my girlfriend loves animals. After we arrived it was a bit smaller than I had expected but they had a decent amount of animals for it being the size that it was. However, some of their animals were a bit out of place in the exhibits and you could tell they weren't happy about being there. There was a lion and a tiger in the same enclosure as well as emus and some type of deer in another. Also the animals they did the bottle feeding to seemed way underfed. You could see the outline of the bones on the Jersey bull calfs that they had and the baby zebra was the same way. Also there was a donkey that was very timid around humans and some of the goats crawled right under the fence so I had to put them back in before they got out of the zoo.
