Recordist: Listening Earth
Location: Tarangire River, Tanzania

Night on the Savannah

Manyara National Park

Tanzania
Recordist: Listening Earth
Location: Manyara National Park, Tanzania
Habitat: Equatorial broadleaf forest
Notes: We were camped in a forest clearing at Manyara NP, and heard these lions calling very close to our camp. The lion may seem quiet, but turn your volume up so the night insects sound pretty loud (they were!) and just imagine lying on the ground with only Chinese nylon between you and the night sounds.

Notes: The air is filled with a rich chorus of nocturnal insects. Bats flutter overhead, sometimes coming close and audibly echo-locating. Nightjars call mysteriously on the wing, and if you listen carefully, the deep rumbling vocalisations from a family of elephants can occasionally be heard. More info
