What lizards are these?

No 1: Spotted this one by the bride at Lower Sabie. Must have been about 40cm

And this one I saw by Mlondozi, Not quite as big, but it must be one of the prettiest I've seen.

Thanks!
Karien

The first looks like a giant plated lizard.

The second one looks like the male Rainbow skink. The females have the conspicuous blue tale, while the male has this coppery colour.

It is :) I saw this one earlier in the trip, and realized it was the same when I looked at the snake pic.
