Dear Chris,
This is a Toxic Milkweed Grasshopper in the family Pyrgomorphidae, and we want to compliment you on the wonderful lateral view of your image.  Based on this image from Beetles of Africa, we believe it is
Dictyophorus spumans, the Koppie Foam Grasshopper, though many images online of the species are more colorful.
