Large bird of prey Central Drakensberg South Africa (1 Viewer)

Just come back from South Africa and having trouble ID ing this bird. It was at Cathedral Peak. It's a juvenile I think. It was quite large. Initial thoughts were an eagle of some type, but looking back at the photo it doesn't have feathered legs! Considered Jackal Buzzard, but it seemed larger that a buzzard. Other thoughts were maybe immature Gymnogene?
