There are several parkruns around jo'burg - why not go along to one of those and ask about where to run or who to run with?
I don't know much about Jo'burg but just looked up the altitude - it's similar to ski resorts I've run in. High enough to make a bit of a difference but you'll still be able to run comfortably enough. Use a HR monitor if possible, to run to effort.
Try to contact the Rand Athletic Club in Jo'burg they are great and always welcome overseas runners they are like the Serpies in London
i spent a few weeks just outside cape town last year and although argueably much safer, i ran with the local running club there and not only were they really friendly, i was taken on runs and routes that i would never have found as a visitor - 20km morning mountain runs with the most amazing views anyone? It really enhanced my whole experience and I can whole heartedly recommend it.
