At a distance of 10 km from Shimoga, en-route to Sagar town, Lions, Tigers and other animals are often found roaming around in the deep forests freely. The Lion-Tiger Safari started way back in 1988 is an ideal picnic spot. The safari is spread over a huge area of 200 hectares of dense forest. One can be a witness to the grace, diversity, colour and marvel of nature and catch enlivening glimpses of lions, tigers, cheetah, bear, deer, and rare migratory birds as they amble around in this luxuriant habitat.

Regular recreation and sight seeing outings are organized by the forest department for visitors and special recreation facilities are made for the children visiting the Safari. While the scene is sure to enrapture you, there are strict rules prohibiting the use of Cameras within the area and while on the Safari.

The Lion-Tiger Safari is open from 9.00 AM to 5.00 PM on all days of the week, save Tuesday, which is the one day when the Safari is shut and unavailable.

Almost all buses to Sagar will stop here and Sagar is also the nearest railhead, while the closest airport is at Mangalore. The Shettihalli Wildlife Sanctuary, the Sakrebayalu Elephant Camp, the Mandagadde Bird Sanctuary and Gudavi Bird Sanctuary are the other nearby tourist attractions.
