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.

We stopped by on our way out of Eureka Springs and are so glad we did. They have all kinds of animals and the petting zoo was a total blast. The Parakeet feeding room is so fun - love the big parrots too. The love to talk and dance. The drive-thru safari was a blast - lots of deer/hoofed mammals... More

Sure. It's not a massive zoo, with every exotic animal, but they have a very nice collection. Plus, you are in the comfort of your own car. The petting zoo is also cool - I enjoyed playing with the python.

Wonderful drive through zoo. It was great to see the animals so close. Many deer and emus came to the car to feed.

Had so much fun! Only wish we had more time. Jungle Josh and his lovely assistant/daughter were there with animals to pet and learn about, a very neat show. My 3 year old and I could have spent all day there, especially at the petting zoo. Even though I enjoyed watching the fun she was having, and the excitement she... More

A fun place to drive through. Great for kids, just keep the windows up. The ostriches like to peck little fingers. Lots of deer, anteloupe, ostrich, running around. other things in large cages you see as you drive through. Very Nice.

The family was able to buy animal food, the drive through zoo and the walk through zoo for under $100. It was well worth it. The ages of 2 to 29 and everywhere in between loved it and want to go back. You can not feed the animals during the drive-thru part but the are animals in the walk-thru that... More

This was our second trip to Promised Land Zoo. The first time we went was during a trip to Eureka Springs. The most recent trip, we took the short hour drive from Branson. We took our daughter who is under 1 year old. She loved looking at the animals and getting fairly close to them. Can't wait to visit again... More

When my nephew and sister-in-law came to visit from California, I wanted to take them someplace unique. We started in the lobby looking at the animals in there,and were helped by the sweetest young lady! So we drove through the "zoo" very slowly so we could experience all of the animals and the scenery. Feeding the deer was so much... More

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.
