Do you miss the sounds of the African bushveld when you're away from it? Guest blogger Sarah Fox of Mahlatini Travel lives in a city miles away from Africa and she certainly misses the bushveld sounds. Here are some of her favourites.
1. African thunderstorm - sudden, dramatic, powerful, deafeningly loud, and gone before you know it.
5. The sound of a lion roaring.
6. Spotted hyena - also kown as the laughing hyena because its chatter sounds like a human laughing. (Find out Why hyenas need a spin doctor)
7. Hippopotamus - distinctive grunt that sounds like a blast from a tuba.
