Lark, Cisticola, Camaroptera?

I feel like I should know this one but I just can't put my finger on it and it is probably quite obvious ... any ideas?

Taken in May in Pafuri, Northern Kruger Park, South Africa

Thanks for the help

Immature Green-winged Pytilia I'd say, you can just see the barring underneath.
