This bulb was photographed in early January in Addo in the main camp. It grows in large numbers.

Senyetse, I asked a botanist, and he said that your bulb is probably one of the Bulbine spp. When we visited Addo in December 2006, the same bulb was growing in great profusion. Here's one of my pix of it:

This is Drimia capensis
Ask not what your plant can do for you but what you can do for your planet.
