Best Answer

Veldt or veld ~ n. any open grazing areas of southern Africa. It is the term applied to grassy plateaus of the Republic of South Africa and of Zimbabwe.

Elsewhere called Savannah.

This is a higher altitude region with low rainfall where the main vegetation are grasses and small herbs. Trees are uncommon, or occur in sheltered valleys. The lack of trees is mainly due to the grassland being prone to frequent fires, typically triggered by lightning strikes, which kill most plant species not adapted to living in those conditions.
