My sister & I, along w/ three children between us, were looking for something to do before heading back home yesterday &, at the kids' urging, we ended up at the Promised Land Zoo. When we went to pay & found the price of admission for adults to be $19.95, I thought it seemed a bit excessive &, although we absolutely loved the time spent there, I still feel that it's a bit overpriced. The cost for kids ($11.95) seems about what it should cost for everyone. We got there just in time for the animal show &, because we were the only ones there outside of one other couple, we were able to not only sit front & center, but also didn't have to compete w/ anyone to pet the animals that were on exhibit for the show...& the ones they had...boy, were they CUTE (a prairie dog, a 2-year old alligator, a hairy armadillo, etc.)! The kids had a blast! From there, we went to Parakeet Paradise & fed the birds their treats off of the complimentary parakeet sticks. Be prepared for the minute you walk in the door to be accosted by any given number of parakeets fighting to get on your stick, but that's part of what makes it so much fun. We laughed until our jaws hurt over those feisty little creatures desperately seeking a bite off those sticks! They are relentless...until it's gone &, then, they could care less about you being in there or not! :) After that, we picked up the food cups we'd purchased ($3 each for a very small cup of food) & began the foot safari. We very much enjoyed that as well - both children & adults alike. Be sure if you bought food that you use it sparingly throughout or you'll run out about half way through & have to go purchase a refill as each of the animals begging for food is too cute to pass up! There were wooden cut-outs throughout the safari for you to take pictures & lots of other photo-ops. Upon leaving, you must walk through the gift shop to exit & each child just HAD to have SOMETHING of course, but it was worth a small souvenir to remind us of our time spent there by all means. A couple other things to note: 1) As devout Christians, we very much enjoyed the scriptures posted throughout the park. In this world of troubled times, it is a precious reminder that He who made each of us & each of the animals there is always near & always in control. 2) The zoo is small enough that most any aged individual should be able to enjoy the facility. There are some hills, but nothing too steep for most elderly people to walk w/o a problem. 3) We missed out on the bottle feeding as the show wasn't until later & we needed to head back home - but I'm sure, like the animal show - it would've been a big hit w/ the kids! We are frequent travelers to Branson & would gladly return to the zoo again on another trip. There are discount coupons in many of the traveler's books - one I found was buy one full-price admission, get another in half-price. I would search out that coupon again before I returned due to the price of admission, but other than that...it is most definitely a must-see in the area!

This is a small zoo in Branson that is a sister park to a drive through zoo in Eagle Rock, Missouri. We were given sticks with bird seed on them and went into the parakeet house. They'd com sit on the sticks and eat the seeds. We walked around and got to feed ibyx, llamas, camels, emus, and many more. They showed us and allowed us to pet a prairie dog, a snake, a striped possum, and more. We also got to feed camels and goats. I had a great time.
We had a wonderful time. The variety of animals is limited, but you're much closer to them than at most zoos. The normal entry fee seems a little steep to me, although we had a groupon. People food is not sold onsite, but you can come and go throughout the day. This place as more of a petting zoo, but not quite. There were baby feedings, informative sessions (including petting the animals) and food for feeding a number of the critters. The highlight, for us, was the private time with the two-toed sloths. It is a pricey add-on, but it was worth it to spend time with baby Elmer, Baby Velcro and the others. All in all, we highly recommend the Promised Land Zoo
Good small zoo in branson! We had a groupon deal that made it a good deal! I wouldn't of paid full price for it. My boys 3&5 got to feed baby goats and got to pet a bullfrog, prairie dog, possum, snake, and an armadillo! The parakeet paradise was fun! Pathway is hilly and dirt so not recommended for strollers or wheelchairs.
