Definitely another Scoliid wasp, but neither Scolia dubia or S. wahlbergii by range alone. There are a few similar red- and orange-headed species in that part of the world, but I'm not familiar with one with an orange pronotum off the top of my head… This may require checking with a local specialist. There are also a few of these species that aren't in the genus Scolia, to complicate matters a bit.

Hi iGo.. I think this is very similar to your spotting - Although this one is from Africa.
