AFROTROPICAL
Tropical & Subtropical Savanna

This is it. The most famous and spectacular ecosystem in the world! 

defining

This is what most people think of when they think of Africa and it's wildlife. This is the original savanna. For this definition, I am including grasslands and open woodlands. These are found across tropical and subtropical Africa. There are many more specific vegetation communities usually based on dominant plant species, such as Acacia woodlands.

Unlike the rainforest, the trees in woodlands do not overlap to make a closed canopy.

Thinking of travelling again after everything settles down? The first expedition I am booked to work on after the virus is New Guinea & Indonesia in 2021 with Silversea.
