It was suggested that this was a Martial Eagle, but it doesn't seem to fit the white/pale head. I wondered about the African Crowned Eagle, but again the colours don't fit.
Dry arid with scattered trees - spotted in Samburu Game Reserve in Kenya
Thanks to everyone for your suggestions. Based on these I did a bit more digging, adding 'immature' to my search criteria, and I believe it is an immature Martial Eagle (rather than the African Crowned Eagle). Newman's Birds of Southern Africa proved invaluable in making the distinction - link below. http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=yYqLZ...
