A savanna is a rolling
grassland scattered with shrubs and isolated trees, which can be found
between a tropical rainforest and desert biome.
also known as tropical grasslands. They are found in a wide band on
either side of the equator on the edges of tropical rainforests.
Savannas have warm temperature year round. In
the summer there is lots of rain. In Africa the monsoon rains begin in
May. An average of 15 to 25 inches of rain falls during this time. It gets hot and very humid

ground and collides with cooler air above and turns into rain. In the
afternoons on the summer savanna the rains pour down for hours.
