Reopened at the Iziko South African Museum, African Savannah highlights the savannah – an iconic African landscape, covering almost a third of the continent.

From the easily recognisable umbrella-shaped acacia trees to the vast stretches of grassland, this fascinating environment is found nowhere else on earth. Hundreds of animal and bird species survive in the savannah, including the world’s largest herds of hooved animals and the famous predators that feed on them.

The savannah is an ecosystem of seasonal variation, which affects the availability of plant life for herbivores, and prey for predators. This is a finely balanced ecosystem, driven by the ability of animals to coexist, and influenced by its unique habitat.
