Need tour guides in Cape Town and Johannesburg

My husband i are traveling to South Africa and Botswana and Zimbabwe . We are traveling on our own and love the idea of meeting people, learning about history and of course discovering new Art and great food. . We are looking for recommendations for tour guides in Capetown and Johannesburg.

Just to give you an overview - this is our schedule in South Africa

* 6 days on a safari in Zulu Nyala in Swaziland ( I think the town is Hiuhluwe)

* 4 days in Cape Town - Tamboerskloof: Cape Cadogan

* 2 camps in Botswane and then Zimbabwe - Safari activities and different lodges.

* 3 days in Johannesburg - Athol Place hotel

we particularly want tour guides in Capetown and Johannesburg. Suggestions? We do want to see the art world and museums in Johannesburg. Restaurant recommendations are welcome too. Thanks.

You are staying in a nice part of Cape Town. It’s quite easy to guide yourself around if you wish. Uber is inexpensive and safe for short trips around the city, but you may want a private driver for trips to Cape Point and the winelands. I’m fortunate enough to have family that lives in CT, so transport is not a problem for me. You can arrange reliable private drivers through your hotel.

One suggestion: plan Table Mountain for the first day if you can. The cableway is closed when winds are too strong, but when you book your tickets online they are good for 7 days from the date you specify, so you can pick a day when visibility is good.
