You said the bird was big, but it can also be seen that the bird is robust. IMHO, you are correct in saying that this is a Juvenile Martial.

And you'd be correct.

Found that this one was on what looks to me like a helmeted guineafowl kill:

Last week at a large pan in northern Namibia we saw this raptor soaring very high. First guess was Palm-nut Vulture but on looking at the photos we saw the barred tailed and lack of white tip to the tail. Also, note the dark patch on the collar. Anyone have any idea what it might be ?

Please excuse the image quality - the thing was VERY high !
