@kobet - were you able to read/record the number on the tag? I ask because resighting info is very important to the researchers who tagged the Lappet-faced Vulture.
In terms of who may have tagged it: there appear to be multiple organizations tagging Lappet-faced Vultures in southern Africa. One good possibility is the annual Lappet-faced Vulture ringing and tagging effort in Namib-Naukluft Park in Namibia. This web page from the Gobabeb Research and Training Centre mentions the project - they might be able to put you in touch with the project organizers:
WildlifeAct also does Vulture tagging and research: http://wildlifeact.com/
This is a photo of a Lappet-faced Vulture in the nest just prior to being tagged by WildlifeAct: https://www.pinteres...60428148868490/
A somewhat longer shot is the South African organization Vulpro - I think they have only tagged 1 Lappet-faced Vulture:
There are other possibilities - I found the above by googling the following: tagged lappet faced vulture
Good luck and I hope you have the number you can give to the researchers who tagged it!
