That second one looks like the Namibian one except it does not have the yellow tail. It also looks similar to Kirks agama. It seems that the agamas all over Africa look very similar with yellow, red or blue heads.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

It's either Agama lionotus lionotus or Agama lionotus dodomae. The dodomae's have a black "O" ring on their chin while the lionotus just have just a plain red chin.

I would say that the top photograph is of a juvenile tree agama species.
