I asked the camp staff naturalist about the frogs in the ponds and he said there were two kinds, little "acacia frogs" and big "savannah frogs". I presumed he meant the toads were the big ones, as I did not see or hear any third species. I could find neither "Acacia Frog" nor "Savannah Frog" (nor "Savannah Toad") on the web or in my herps common/scientific names book. These toads were basic toad size, probably between 3 and 4 inches long.
Due in part to a lack of comprehensive references, and in part to the poor quality of my photos, I didn't have a good guess for the identify of these toads until recently. Helpful people on iNaturalist pointed out that they seem to be Sclerophrys garmani.
