Subject: What insect is this?

I came across this insect while holidaying in Marloth Park – Mpumalanga Dec 2012.
This is some species in the order Orthoptera that contains Katydids, Crickets and Grasshoppers. We are unsure of its identity. A head on view is not the ideal vantage for trying to identify an unknown creature. A lateral view would be highly preferred. It also appears that this is a Longhorned Orthopteran in the suborder Ensifera. We were unsure of your location, but we now know that Marloth Park and Mpumalanga are in South Africa.
