This one was seen in the Kruger in May at the Crocodile River, despite searching I'm unable to identify it.

I think it's probably a threebanded plover, although you can't see the chest in your photo.

Three-banded Plover?

Pls see: link

Certainly looks like it.

Great idea to snap a pic, even if you cannot ID it
at that moment.

Yup, agree with Three-banded Plover.

The dark crown, white crown edge, red eye-ring, red bill on base, black and white band on the breast are the inimitable signs.
