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).

“Best part of our vacation! WONDERFUL place to visit!!!”
Reviewed 21 February 2011

We had an amazing time at Promised Land Zoo! We visited Eureka Springs for the weekend and decided to visit the zoo. The day we were supposed to go on our private tour, our car broke down. We decided to take the taxi to the zoo so that we could still go. It was very expensive for the taxi ride. We really didn't have the money but wanted to go so bad that we made it work. While we were visiting the zoo the owner took us on our tour and when she found out our car had broke down she offered to take us back to our hotel (30 minutes away!!!!) We were so incredibly thankful and took her up on her offer. The owners are genuine Christian people and EXTREMELY friendly! We will definitely be returning! The zoo has a large variety of animals including babies that you can bottle feed (my favorite!) and while we were there we got to hold and play with a baby monkey (best part of it all!!) I just cannot say enough about this place! You can tell that the animals are happy and healthy. The animals don't surround your car like other places I've been, they are very friendly but yet you can still get close enough to feed them out of your hands. I LOVED this place and definitely recommend this as a MUST SEE!

“Really fun place for all ages.”
Reviewed 6 September 2010

If you love animals, you'll love this place. It offers a great petting zoo of which my boyfriend and I spent most of our time there. We bought a large bag of treats to feed many of the animals. We got pretty dirty from petting and holding the animals, but we didn't mind at all. It just made the trip more interesting and fun. The animals were so cute especially some of the babies. The ride through the property was really nice. It's quite impressive. The animals tend to move in a large herd so where you see one, you see them all. The ostriches were really funny. They would tap at the window when we teased them with our fingers. We took some great pictures, and had an awesome time. It's a bit costly, but worth it to us. Also, it's about ten miles outside of Eureka Springs just across the Missouri State line, but the drive was a great chance to get out of the "town limits". We definitely recommend this place to all.

“Well worth the ride”
Reviewed 5 September 2010

The four mile drive thru zoo was amazing. Be sure to buy a bag of food when you purchase your tickets - the emus love to eat! We saw some wonderful animals in a relaxed setting. This attraction is well worth the trip. Be sure to save some food for the petting zoo - the zebra and camel are so friendly.

“If you are an animal lover or have kids...”
Reviewed 29 August 2010

If you are an animal lover or have kids you should definitely come here. They have a great petting zoo with a camel, deer, goats, mini horses, a zebra, and other small animals. Don't forget to buy a bag of feed in the store, you'll need it. The drive trough part is fun, watch out for the emus! Make sure you have your camera!
