The image with a single individual is a Lappet Moth Caterpillar, possibly a Cape Lappet Moth Caterpillar. We will attempt to identify the group of caterpillars later.
Thanks so much. Yes I also got to the lappet moth group. Great help. The multiple ones looked emperor moth family at first glance but then with the tufted spines it threw me a bit
Thanks so much for the efforts.
We agree that your other caterpillars are from the family Saturniidae, but we want to verify the species.
