I was browsing through old photos, and came across this photo. This will be a new tick for me, I just want to confirm which snipe this is. Am I correct in saying African Snipe?

Morning everyone,

I am hoping that I could have confirmation on this bird which I photographed in the Pilanesberg. I originally put it down as a Great Snipe, but looking through my bird book a couple of days ago I am thinking that this must be the African Snipe because of location.
