I suggest that you try the website http://www.reptiles-of-ethiopia-and-eritrea.com. it is a great on line resource. You can always email the images directly to the author for a second opinion. I had a very rapid response on a frog I saw in Awash.

Many thanks for that advice. I emailed and almost immediately got the the reply Trachylepis varia or Trachylepis isselii (endemic for ETH and ERI). Most probably T.isselii, Acanthocercus cyanogaster, endemic for Ethiopia and Eritrea also and Agama cf.doriae (complex).

Reptiles of East Africa must be out of date I guess giving Mabuya rather than Trachylepis.
