"My experience at the zoo"
Reviewed June, 2016 NEW
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.

Reviewed June 25, 2016 NEW

The zoo is small, but the amount of hands on time with the animals is so much fun & worth spending the extra money to me. We also splurged & did the animal encounters with the serval & carical kittens & the brown lemur Luigi. This was an amazing experience & something you don't get to do everyday so we really enjoyed it!!

"Unforgettable Zoo Encounters"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed June 25, 2016 NEW

We visited this zoo Father's Day weekend 2016. We are Branson regulars but never made time to visit the zoo. Only negative is I wish we would have visited sooner. The Zoo is very educational and you can tell they truly love and care for these sweet animals. We upgraded to VIP and was able to hold many special animals including a baby kangaroo and a bearded dragon. We also did a sloth encounter where we were able to go into the enclosure and feed and pet the animals. Basic admissions offers access to the zoo's bird enclosure, animal bottle feedings, live shows with petting and guided tours. I'm looking forward to returning many more times.

Very small zoo, but they have a great focus on the customers and are very kind. The animals have plenty of character as you interact with them.

"Poor Animals :("

Reviewed June 24, 2016 NEW

I always enjoy going to zoos that I've never been to before. Though small, I was still eager to see what animals this zoo offered. It was not cheap and when I entered, I was immediately appalled at what I saw. Animals were not in their 'natural habitat' settings. There were different species of big cats sharing one cage. One of the big cats had an empty pop bottle that she was playing with. A keeper walked right by and clearly noticed this; but did nothing to remove it. Other animals were in fenced areas that were not appropriate in space, vegetation, terrain for those specific animals. I was only able to stay for less than an hour and had to leave.
