Parakeet Paradise Is a Colorful Experience at Promised Land Zoo

Get closer at the Promised Land Zoo. Branson’s top-rated animal attraction and the largest attraction inside Branson is located on 75 acres of natural Ozarks forest and fauna. A visit to Promised Land Zoo is the best way to get closer to rare and endangered animals. Our hands-on park allows you to get up close and personal with animals.

Stroll along the meandering Foot Safari to view and visit animals from around the globe. Enter Parakeet Paradise with a complimentary food stick to feed hundreds of free flight birds. In the Animal Adventure Building there are touch tanks and unique exhibits. The two-mile Drive Thru provides a whole different view of the animals. Choose to take the Guided, Climate Controlled Tram Tour and you’ll actually go into various animal enclosures and be able to feed the animals. The VIP Admission includes all of this plus a VIP Encounter that gives you an opportunity to hold baby kangaroos, wrap a python around your neck and play with some adorable animals for photos.

Want even more? Our VIP Plus Admission includes everything listed above plus a once-in-a-lifetime encounter with one of our most special residents like the Giraffe feeding, two-toed Sloths, Eurasian Eagle Owl, African Wild Kittens, Lemurs and more. Check out our website for details.

In November and December we add “Let There Be Lights” – the Largest Drive Thru Light Display in the Ozarks! We are a Zoo By Day! Lights By Night!
