Description: Home to over 500 rare and endangered animals from all over the world...
Home to over 500 rare and endangered animals from all over the world representing 56 species. We have camels, kangaroos, lemurs, buffalo, omnivores, deer and we are home to many rescued large reptiles and tropical birds too! We have just added some cats to our park including Caracals and Servals. There is plenty to see in our 4 mile drive thru and petting zoo with walk thru area too! Come during one of our bottle feeding times and you will get to help our zookeepers bottle feed baby animals! Newly added this past summer we opened a new wing to the Walk Thru to include a Ring-tailed Lemur Exhibit, an American Alligator Poll and the Prarie Dog Town! Open everyday, year-round! Have a bigger family? Promised Land ZOO now offers a special Family Rate that will allow you to bring all the kids you want at a discounted rate (see our website for details). Also look to our website for personal tour, group tour and special party information. Bottle feedings daily.

You start out looking at animals around the front office. You can then get in your car and drive through the zoo seeing all kinds of different animals running around loose. They say don't feed them , but the ostriches and emus will follow you around if you do.

This zoo features a petting zoo area and a drive-thru safari. My boyfriend and I started out in the petting zoo area which featured way more animals than the typical petty zoo. Initially, we didn't purchase the feed bucket, but after a few minutes of all of the animals trying to sniff and nip at our hands, we realized they... More

Drive through wildlife park with a petting zoo. My wife, our six year old daughter and I enjoyed the animals and enjoyed the Bible quotes in the drive thru. I do wish the Serval cat would have had more room. It was a short drive from Eureka Springs. Allow about two hours to enjoy the animals.

This place was awesome as you can see by the photos. My favorites were the Emus. They were the clowns that stole the show with the young camel coming in a close second. I think the parakeets found a new friend. So much to see and you can do it from your vehicle. Just remember that they tell you two... More

While driving to Eureka Springs from Branson, we just happened upon the zoo and decided to take a look. Were we glad we did! This turned out to be one of our trip's highlights. The Promised Land Zoo is a private enterprise that takes in rescues and breeds their animals. They work closely with zoos. While not large, the drive... More

It was one of the most amazing times we had in Eureka Springs area. As we were driving around the place we actually saw a baby being born on a Black Horn Antelope. It was amazing and the people that were there running the place was so friendly and helpful. Also loved the idea it is a Christian atmosphere.

We have a great time going through this drive through zoo. Have fun trying to pet the deer, and always get entertained with the ostriches coming up to windows. it takes about an hour to drive through parts and then about 15-20 min for petting zoo. I would go back to here when we go back to Branson

The animals and place was very well taken care of, way more animals then I expected. The buffalos were huge and came right up to our car. The petting zoo was a blast!!! Can't wait to go back.
