Ranebennur Blackbuck Sanctuary

Located 8 km from Ranebennur in Haveri District, the Ranebennur Blackbuck Sanctuary was created with view to protect the black buck.

The area is covered mainly by scrub forest and eucalyptus plantations, and is also inhabited by the endangered Great Indian bustard and the wolf. Other mammals include wild pig, fox, jackal, langur, porcupine, common mongoose, hare, pangolin and hyenas. Avifauna population in the sanctuary includes peafowl, sirkeer cuckoo, large grey babbler, bay backed shrike and black drongo.

October to March is ideal to watch blackbuck. Great Indian bustard is most easily viewed during February to May. A forest rest house on the sanctuary boundary at Gangajala, offers comfortable accommodation.
