Be sure to take an afternoon while in Tampa Bay to visit this hidden gem and to do one of the daily afternoon guided tours. It will be one of the best places you visit in Tampa I assure you. You will see more large wild cats up very close of so many varying breeds (lions, panthers, bobcats, lynxes, leopards, sand cats, tigers, and on and on....) all in well kept habitats (catitats). The tour is about 90min guided by knowledgeable and trained volunteers, and will take you through the sanctuary on foot to view and learn about dozens and dozens of the big cats. You will also learn how the cats have been saved from abuse and abandonment, find out how they are given the care and shelter they deserve and why this sanctuary is such a special and important place. It's kind of hidden away in northwest Tampa suburb of Citrus Park. But well worth seeking out. You will want to go back and visit again.
