Lark, Kruger NP, South Africa

Seen near Pretoriuskop on the 1st of August. Photographed through the front car window which distorts the images a bit. I can't seem to figure this one out, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

The giss of this bird points more to a pipit in my opinion (or maybe the distortion just affected this) - and possibly Bushveld Pipit.

Do you recall how big the bird was? Sparrow-sized? Larger perhaps?

Bushveld / Grassland / African Pipit looks the best ID to me, too. It's a pipit, not a lark anyway.
