International Flight-Confused About Carry-ons & Checked Bags

I'm a female who will be traveling alone and I'm scheduled to leave for Namibia, Africa at the end of July.

I'll be flying out of PIT on a United DH4 to IAD, then from IAD on a South African 346 to JNB. I have a 20 hour layover in Johannesburg before boarding a South African 738 to WDH.

When will I check my two bags and when will I see them again?? Will I, or more importantly, can I, retrieve my checked bags at the baggage claim in Johannesburg? If I do this, do I have to go through S.A. customs to fly on to Namibia?? My return trip is the same, only reversed.

I'm fairly certain all flights will allow me a carry on plus a personal item.

I'm very confused at this point and want to be prepared regarding the process before I leave.

Thanks :)
