This petting and drive through ZOO is a MUST see for anyone traveling through or residing in the Eagle Rock/Eureka Springs area. I live close by and visit the zoo every time visitors or grand kids come to stay. The petting zoo is hilarious as we feed animal treats to goats, deer, camels, Imus, and even pigs. My 6 year old granddaughter just was thrilled feeding the camel, remarking on the camel's long eyelashes! But the most fun is always the drive through zoo. The animals (large variety of antelope, exotic deer etc) come right up to the car for treats. Even buffalo come for a treat, sticking out their black tongue to grab a treat. Recently they have a crazy funny llama who stands in front of the car until you give in and give him a treat. I have not laughed so hard in years, trying to outsmart a llama! The natural habitat is breathtaking, seeing herds of wild life grazing, running together. I find it incredible that the small country town of Eagle Rock has such an attraction as the Promise Land Zoo. It is so worth the additional drive for anyone visiting Branson. And after your zoo trip, you are minutes away from Eureka Springs attractions and Roaring River State Park to make a full day of adventure.
