Grasslands & Savannahs

Grasslands and savannahs, particularly in tropical regions, are often biodiversity hotspots.

The soundscapes one hears in these habitats can be rich and varied, open and spacious, with delicate and textured birdsong, occasional calls of browsing animals or the soft hum of insects.

While some locations, such as Africa's Serengeti, are iconic landscapes, others are little known and appreciated. With these recordings you can explore a range of the world's wilder and less familiar soundscapes.
