Hi Way, very nice capture of eagle. I would choice portrait crop to show much more from high quality details of your shot in limited conditions of trek presentation.

I think it is a tawny eagle (Aquila rapax). The dark wing tip, nostrils, size, shape of beak are my clues.
The red tailed hawk is not found except N America. But this type of 'uhm...this, that' sentences are becoming ridiculous as hawkers tend to mess up things everywhere. No surprise even tough in Africa.
In steppe eagle gape extend beyond eyes and throat is sometimes pale
The capture is an A plus photo, didnt i mention about that :)

Lovely clear image and well composed. This is almost certainly a Tawny.

A lovely composition,the lighting is wonderful.
Great focus with sharp detail.
The plumage is well defined with excellent sharpness.
This eagle looks very similar to a Golden Eagle.
It looks like there is room for another eagle .
Superb shot, well exposed with good sharpness and detail. The background is particularly pleasing and complements the rich colors the late afternoon sun gave the bird.
One thing bothers me though: the broken branch on the right. I did a workshop to get rid of it. Smile.
