Owner description: 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.

It was an amazing trip, being able to see all of the animals and even the animals coming up to our car was amazing.

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.

I have now been to both parks. I had so much fun, and the animals all looked so happy. Can't wait to go back. The petting zoo is my favorite.

We visited with friends with kids, and the kids loved it. But given the price, the adults expected a bit more. It is nice to see animal with so much room, but we just expected to see a larger variety of animals. We've been through a similar kind of zoo, but MUCH larger (with a similar price point) and I...

This was a nice area. Most of the animals were free roaming and looked very happy. The rest were being rearranged in the outside areas so they were in slightly small areas. Still seemed very happy. Loved the beautiful mountain view and it was nice to see the animals roaming through trees, rocks, and water. Quite a few of the... More

It was a nice drive thru animal viewing. I did expect the road to be paved foras much as they charge but it was a rocky dirt road. Lots of deer & antelope varieties. Did expect more variety that what was there. Petting zoo was not impressive nor was the price they charged to buy the food to feed them.

We went there being major animal lovers.. we had gone to turpentine and loved it so we wanted to try this. The drive through was fun. Feeding various animals as they came to the car was great. We wanted to bottle feed the petting zoo animals. We got back at 345 as they advertise bottle feeding starts at 4. We... More

We had blast riding through seeing all the animals, looking healthy and happy roaming freely in huge areas. Some young animals were romping and playing. The paraket cage was awesome! We loved entering their space & letting them perch on our sticks. I loved the little notes about the animals and how they came to the zoo, I LOVE THIS... More

Went in paid our admission and bought us a bucket of food for the animals. I work and drive all the time so being on vacation the wife decides she will drive us through. Sign says keep your windows almost all the way up. So after we crossed the cattle guard we hadn't seen anything yet and old me my... More

We had seen signs for this place so on the way back from Eureka Springs decided to visit. What a nice surprise. The price seemed a little high, but it was well worth it. The drive-thru was fun with animals coming to the car to eat. The ones in cages you could throw food to. Also, the petting zoo area... More
