The bright yellow flower lip presents a view of its raised crest and wavy margins.
Flowering of A. africana happens in winter and spring, peaking at the start of spring; blooming may last for several weeks.
These plants or some parts of them are eaten by monkeys (Pooley, 1998; Onderstall, 1984; www.plantzafrica.com).
