Safari nostalgia getting to you? We’ve compiled a list of just some of our favourite safari sounds. From the raspy roar of a lion to the iconic call of the fish eagle, switch off your mind and switch on our top 10 safari sounds of Africa.
The iconic safari sound of Africa, a male lion’s roar can be heard up to six kilometres away.
Probably Africa’s most misunderstood creature, the hyena is famous for its manic giggles.
Although their trumpet call is certainly loud, they also communicate using low-frequency sounds.
If you’ve ever been on safari, in particular in Southern Africa, you’ve probably heard this eagle’s shrill call.
Mostly silent and elusive, when a leopard occasionally calls out it sounds like a long sawing roar.
The bubbling kassina frogs form part of the evening choir when you are on safari.
Hippos are aggressive animals and they, therefore, make these grunts in order to mark their territory.
Africa has many owls, but the Verreaux eagle owl is probably one of the most recognisable as it’s so common, especially in Southern Africa. In addition to this, it’s also the largest of all African owls.
African wild dogs are very social and communicate with each other by using touch, vocalisations and action. This sharp Hoo sound can be heard up to four kilometres away.
This distinct call is usually a signal that summer is on its way in the Kruger National Park because it’s generally the first migrant bird to return.
Listen to nothing but Africa’s safari sounds for hours on end.
In the meantime, join us on our Our Home Safari for more entertainment during self-isolation.
