Your first photo looks to me like the Yellow Throated plated lizard.

@jaytea Your lizard is possibly a Yellow-throated Plated Lizard. Another one to look at is Black-lined Plated Lizard, but you'd really need to hold them in the hand to get the difference.

I would appreciate it if someone can tell me what the name is of the lizard (?). I had this sighting near Middelvlei, halfway between Letaba and Mopani.

Thank you very much.
