From zatech/electronics:

You tried They local. Here in Cape Town (edited)
There is also WH Circuit
Bosco in Gauteng
ProCircuit in Cape Town as well (edited)
Cirtech as well (edited)
If you search for PCB Manufacture in SA there are a few others, mostly in JHB & Cape Town. Some do offer small runs / prototyping services. Not sure if they'll do everything OSH Park do or in the small quantities OSH Park will do but depending on the design it might be worth it.
A few of the local manufacturers also partner with Chinese manufacturers and can have your prototypes made in China and then they handle shipping etc.
