Crinum in Tanzania

We saw, in just one spot in Tanzania, a Crinum species that I did not 
recognize.  The picture is shown at:

Just scroll down to the Crinum section, and it follows the piece on Crinum 
macowanii.  I'd appreciate any help in IDing the unknown Crinum.  Since we 
saw it in a national park, there was no possibility of bringing a specimen 
home.

Crinum macowanii was seen in numerous places, including Tarangire National 
Park, Ngorongoro crater, and one or two places in the Serengeti.

None of the bulbs seen were in seed; in fact, they all seem to have just 
started to bloom.
