I see my first guess is wrong. I did a reverse image search. It appears to be Clivia miniata? Not sure thats correct either.

Hi there HamiltonSquare,

Spot on! Thank you! Smiling Your first guess was extremely close though.

The pistil is missing in the center flower of your photo but I can make it out in the rest. I do think is a Clivia but I don't know which one. I tip my hat to you.

Yep, this is a Clivea miniata. The common name is Kaffir Lily & the family name is Amaryllidaceae.
