"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.

This is a small zoo but that is what made it great. When I went, it was the middle of the week and there might have been 10 other visitors in the entire place. We got the vip encounter and it meant that I got to hold a baby kangaroo. I also got to bottle feed a baby camel, zebra, cows, goats and lamas. They also have a parakeet room that's really fun. Everyone who worked there is friendly and looked like they enjoyed their job. Yes, it might be a little pricey for the size but getting to be up close and personal with the animals makes it worth every penny

"A Pretty Good Small Zoo"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed October 26, 2016 NEW
This is definitely not the biggest or the best zoo around, but it is a nice way to spend a couple of hours especially if you have small children. There are various things to do--bird feeding and an animal stage show, viewing one of the largest albino pythons in the country and visiting a nice gift shop. For me, however, the best part is just walking up close among the animals and making connections with the likes of alpacas or alpaca-like creatures, a lemur, a very large owl, lions, tigers, goats, and many more. In short, it is refreshing to note that in the hustle and bustle of Branson, there is a pleasant and relatively quiet place to unwind and just take it easy. J. Randolph Smith Monroe, LA

This was a wonderful zoo to spend the afternoon at! All the animals were really close and easy to see! You can purchase feed for all the animals. They had a baby zebra that you could bottle feed but could also feed it the small pellet feed. They had a variety of animals! It was a little hard to navigate (steep inclines).

This was our second time to Promise Land in Branson and it was even better than before. The staff is extraordinary. They are knowledgeable about their animals and truly care about their health and well-being. Our experience included the optional VIP encounter as well as the Exclusive Encounters. People talk about the cost but compared to the other attractions in the area this is completely worth it and coupons are available. Even without the exclusive encounters, this is still our favorite place to visit in Branson. We had once in a lifetime experiences with the animals that included physical contact, feeding, and education. Even if we see nothing else in Branson, we will definitely come back just for this.

Reviewed October 21, 2016 NEW
We've been here a couple of times and haven't yet reviewed. After doing the base level admission and activities, we were impressed. The interactive animal presentation and self guided expedition were educational as well as enjoyable. With no prior knowledge or testimonials, we decided to upgrade the experience with a personal, more intimatep encounter. A variety of animal choices are available, and the choice is not easy to make. This encounter is well worth the cost. There is no way to calculate the value of the ability to hold and care for these animals in this environment. The additional VIP animal presentation is also necessary activity with more unique and exclusive animals. The owners are conscientious preservationists who are well suited to this If you're not an animal lover yet, this
