@weirdnumber:

I would guess a weaver of some description.. :lol:
In June, so non-breeding plumage for the males; could be either non-breeding or female Southern Masked Weaver, or Female Village weaver.
I cannot really make out the eye colour, but I would tend to guess Southern Masked (Female).
My 2 cents...
Searching for a Cape Eagle Owl....

Is this a green-backed Camaroptera?

:thumbs_up: Skukuza is a great spot for them.

If I remember correctly, there have been records of Grey Backed being found way up north around Punda and Pafuri, but Green Backed is the only one found commonly in the KNP
