Dear Eric,
While your macro image is quite artful, it doesn’t really show many characteristics that would be helpful for an identification.  Do you have a more traditional angle, like a dorsal view or a lateral view of this creature?  Our best guess is that it is some type of Moth Caterpillar.

While researching a South African Caterpillar, we discovered these photos of a Lymantriinae Caterpillar from South Africa on ISpot that looks similar to this creature.
