Not sure if anyone else has posted on this plant so please excuse me if someone else has already...

I saw these plants alongside the sand road that goes to the Timbavati Picnic Spot in the KNP from Satara side and I was fascinated! What is it? :hmz:

Also agree with crinium :thumbs_up: a member member of the Amaryllidaceae family. Nice photo :thumbs_up:
