Lark? in Kruger NP, South Africa

From 31 August 2017. I called this an Eastern Clapper Lark but am now questioning myself. Is it even a lark?

It's a Cisticola. If I remember correctly Rattling is the default savanna species and I think this looks fine for that sp.

Rattling are one of the most common birds in the bushveld and it is rather nondescript looking so I would agree with SJC.
