The Promised Land Zoo is a family owned business established in 1999. The four mile drive-thru of the Promised Land Zoo features more than 50 species and exotic animals such as monkeys, camels, kangaroos, zebra, tropical birds, large reptiles, antelope, deer, and other incredible animals. When the zoo opened for business, it started with a few animals and now it has grown to over 500 animals and expanded to more than 120 acres. The zoo features a guided personal tour for a great one-on-one experience. Each visitor can get the chance to bottle feed the animals that come from around the world.
At the petting zoo, you can have the opportunity to get up close and feed goats, porcupine, horses, tortoise, hogs, and much more. As you drive through the vast property of the Promised Land Zoo, you will be greeted by buffalo, deer or emus that are all expecting some food. There are some foods for the animals at the shop you can grab if you don’t want to frustrate these animals. As you drive along, you may stop for awhile to feed animals every time they come near. They come near your window and may grab the food out from your hands.
