ATM machine Johannesburg airport before pickup

Before we are picked up from the airport of Johannesburg we need to get cash from a ATM machine.
As we don't know our driver and we don't want him to know we just got our money i like to get the money before entering the airport terminal and pickup area.

is this possible or can we only get money after bagage claim and thus in the main airport pickup area?

Good Music Cape Town

Hi guys

Am into african music, soul & blues (but not rap or hip hop). Will be in Cape Town for a week. Keen on seeing the local music scene. Anyone done the Coffeebeans Routes activity or been on their friday night reggae safari?
Also curious about Dinner@ Mandela's evening tour. Any good places that have a good mix of african music that aren't touristy. Just looking for nice places to hangout & enjoy good music that has a good ethnic mix.
Thanks guys.

Johannesburg Tours and Accommodations

I've got 3 full days to spend in Jo'burg in early November and am looking for advice on accommodations and tours. It will be my first time in Jo'burg (although have spent time in Cape Town previously) so I'm looking for both wildlife and cultural experiences. I'm hoping for something mid-range in price and group tours are fine.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

The Winelands and the Little Karoo

Hello!

I'm planning a four-night trip to the Winelands and the Little Karoo in late January. We'll rent a car in Cape Town.

Any suggestions where to stop for two nights in the Winelands and for two nights in the Little Karoo. I've been looking at Stellenbosch and Montagu. In any case, we don't want to be driving all the time. Instead, we'd like to rent bikes to visit wineries and do some hiking in the Little Karoo.
