I guess that the frog might be a Natal Sand Frog, Tomopterna natalensis. But that is simply a guess.

And I would agree to disagree with Jamster ;) I think the skink might be Trachylepis depressa, Eastern Coastal Skink.

Thanks Westley - there's an image of a Natal sand frog by Nick Evans on this site that looks like mine - looking at other skink images on the internet, Trachylepsis depressa does look likely... Charles
