Looks like a member of the Cacosternum genus.

Perhaps Cacosternum boettgeri but the ones from Limpopo look a little different.

Nice Henco, I am glad to see that you still manage to get out to do some field herping.

Are you sure those are from tortoises from Limpopo province? Somehow they look look they are from the Northern Cape ?

That's the first ting that stood out to me. They look like Kalahari Tent Tortoises (Pssamobates oculiferus). But I just checked in Bill Branch and P. oculiferus do occur in the Northern and North-West Provinces. I would never have thought so.
