"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.

"Small zoo, hands-on experience, perfect for us!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

Yes, this is a small zoo, but the hands-on experience is great. We went there with a 3 year old and a 1-1/2 year old and both loved it. They were able to feed many animals, including a bottle feeding of the camel, goats and calves, feeding the parakeets peanut butter and seeds on a stick and buying a cup of food for $3 and feeding many the animals around the zoo. They do bottle feedings twice a day (I believe it was at noon and 4 today) and that is included with your admission. The parakeet feeding is also included (extra sticks may be purchased 2/$1). The staff was very friendly and helpful. More than once we stopped a worker to ask questions and the worker pleasantly stopped to answer everything we asked. For example they have a female lion and male tiger in the same exhibit and they explained that that can happen because they have been that way since they were born, but that's not normal, of course. Many of the animals there are rescue animals or were given to them by people who were not able to care for them any longer, including the biggest albino python I have ever seen. That helps make the zoo even more appealing in my opinion. It was so informative also because of that. For the animal show they bring out several animals (they rotate which animals every day we were told) and everyone there can pet them. The workers are so knowledgeable about the animals and share that with you. My children were thrilled to get to pet a hedgehog, python (I was not excited about that), African bullfrog, prairie dog and a lizard that I have forgotten its name. We just did the regular admission and did not upgrade to the VIP pass. We spent close to 3 hours there (we did go visit several animals more than once and took our time feeding them). We are so glad that we took the time to go and recommend this to anyone who would enjoy having a hands-on experience like this.

This is a great way to spend a few hours away from the hustle and bustle of Branson. The people are very personable and willing to answer all questions. We will return here again with our grandchildren

"Great little zoo"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed November 24, 2016 NEW
Small zoo with a few hands on interactive experiences suited for small children or those under 14 or so. Nothing spectacular but still enjoyable and a good way to spend 1.5 to 2 hours in the city of branson. Our kids ages 3-8 loved the animals and feeding the birds the peanut butter on sticks. I think for adults only or older teenagers this might not be as enjoyable to their age group.

"Best Zoo we've been to!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed November 19, 2016 NEW
This is a unique place. There are a fair amount of quality animal exhibits, and VIP hands on opportunities for a little extra money. We recommend this place for anyone who appreciated God's Creation. Our 2 year old absolutely lived it and so did we, early 30s adults. This place is not your ordinary zoo, it's more pricey, but worth every penny. We will be back.
