Where are we going today?
You don't have to visit Africa to feel like you are roaming the plains on safari! Promised Land Zoo is a drive thru park in Eagle Rock, Missouri, where hundreds of animals call home.
These animals, from all over the world, represent around 60 species. That's a lot of animal fun to be had! Make sure you try and spot your favorites!
The range of creatures at Promised Land Zoo is amazing. From zebras, kangaroos, bison, camels, tropical birds, monkeys, and so much more. The zoo is the kind of place where you will be able to get closer to the animals, making your experiences more personal and unforgettable.
Family owned and operated since 1992, so they know what families want out of their family day out! In addition to the drive thru and walk thru area, there is a whole other host of experiences to be had.
There are bottle feedings daily, which are always great fun for the kids. Make sure you check the times daily so you don't miss them! You can also feed some of the animals during the drive thru, AND at the petting zoo (there's a petting zoo!) - we told you there were some pretty amazing animal experiences to be had!
Promised Land Zoo also offer VIP tours with the owners and operators, so if you want a once in a lifetime behind the scenes tour, and meet and greet with all of the animals, now is your chance!
Amazing animal fun at this Missouri animal wonder.

A GREAT outing for schools! They offer rates that you just can't beat for teachers, bus groups and the the kids of course. A trip to the zoo can be very educational and fun! Make sure you email to get yours booked in.
They do have ice cream bars, pop and water, chips and candy. .
Buffalo Jerky-made from our own naturally raised bison is a great healthy option - and unusual! They also have a large picnic area which you are welcome to use!.
Any Top Tips?
Where to start! Buy a bucket of feed, schedule a personalized tour, show up during bottle feeding times,, grab a coupon (located on EVERY brochure!) and have FUN!.
Doing our bit
In addition to their regular Zoo residents, they have many rescued animals. They began taking in large reptiles and tropical birds many years ago since local and regional facilities did not have the capability to do so. Now 15% of their residents are rescues from around the country!.
Need a little extra help?
Not a problem, it's a drive thru, so long as you are comfortable in your car you will enjoy the ride! The petting zoo/walk thru area is flat and grassed or gravel and they have wheelchairs and walkers frequently..
Can I get one of those?
They do have a full gift shop, with several lines of toys and Zoo-specific trinkets to take home. Their keepsake feed cups and buckets are always very popular..
The animals that are there are always changing so be sure to come often! They also offer Season Passports for all that wish to see the zoo more regularly..

A really nice small zoo. There is a large variety of animals. The live animal show is worth sticking around for, I learned a few new things. Really ideal for younger children (age 2-5), but school age kids would also enjoy it. Plenty of shade, so a good activity for a sunny day, allow about 1-2 hours to see and experience everything.

We went to the Promised Land Zoo this weekend and had a blast! The whole place was so well kept and clean! What impressed us the most was the petting zoo, camels, zebras and all kinds of goats and horses that would eat right out of the kids' hands. In the drive thru part I was really impressed at the number of species and quantity of animals they had. Again, the animals would eat out of our hands there too. We will be back soon and it was a great value. Watch out for the emus! They will stick there heads in your window if you leave them down.
