Anyone who loves exploring in nature will tell you that much of the pleasure comes from what you hear – from the cry of an African fish eagle to the clicking of barking geckos at the entrance of their Kalahari burrows at dusk. That’s why to go on a sound safari with Nature SoundMap is such a brilliant idea. I love it – and you will too.
You can explore the whole globe, where over 200 recordings have already been uploaded. In Africa alone there are already more than two dozen recordings – and more are planned. Listen to toads on the Nile in Egypt, hyenas in the Maasai Mara, dawn sounds of the Kalahari or on Cameroon’s Mount Kupe, even the haunting cry of the indri in the forests of Madagascar.
Go exploring now on Nature SoundMap. Then use the comments below to tell us what you think.
