Tourists interested in wildlife may choose to visit Anshi National Park that is 60 km away from Karwar in Uttara Kannada District of Karnataka. This national park is spread over an area of 340 sq. km and lies at an elevation of 200 metre to 925 meter above sea level. Located in the eco-sensitive area of Western Ghats, Anshi National Park was created when a part of the Dandeli Wildlife Sanctuary was demarcated to create a national park. In January 2007, Anshi National Park was given the status of a sanctuary for Project Tiger. The best time to visit this site is between the months of November and June. It is home to a vast number of species of animals, reptiles, birds and fauna.
