TAMPA, Fla. - There are a few more reasons to visit Busch Gardens this summer. Three new lion cubs arrived from South Africa in May and guests can see them playing at the Edge of Africa area of the park. Facebook fans helped name the female cubs, "Shaba" which means "brazen" and "Shtuko" which means "twitch."
Busch Gardens also just began their extended "Summer Nights" hours. From June 8 through August 18, guests can stay at the park from 9:30 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. and enjoy the fireworks display at the end of the night.
