hiring car with a driver?

We are coming on August 13 to So Africa - two single women, with some health issues but excited for the animal wildlife and natural beauty.

We need to travel from Zulu Nyala Game Lodge or Richard's Bay Airport to the Antbear Guest Lodge on 8/24 in the Drakensbergs and want a car + driver to take us there; be on call for the 5 days we are there; and then take us to the Durban Airport (8/29).

We will also need a car with driver for the period of time 8/29 - 9/4 when we are in Cape Town.

The car-rental agencies do not seem to cover this topic. Can anyone please advise ASAP?

I use - and recommend - John Farthing: http://www.kestrelservices.co.za. His daily rate is the equivalent of about $200USD, far less than the rate charged by AVIS for a chauffeur-driven car. Plus, John is a gregarious and highly qualified Guide.
