Couple of lizards here from Elephant Sands, Botswana. The 2nd is surely Common Striped Skink, but the first is very plain and I can't make up my mind. I've checked the lizard book, maybe Variegated? Thank you.

The first one looks a lot like a variegated skink \O

I am not very much into Lizards ;-)
