- Kona Honzo from Trailtech Cycles in Nelspruit.

- Nukeproof Scout you will have to order on Chain Reaction Cycles

- Locally the Silverback Slade Trail is awesome - currently out of stock, but should be in shops again soon.

 

I was deciding between the Silverback Slade frame and a Scout 290 frame, I ended up going for the Slade because of the slightly steeper seat angle. I am running a 27.5x2.8 plus rear wheel and 29x2.6 front wheel which slackens the seat tube angle a bit so I needed that extra degree when compared to the Scout. I am a very happy camper - one of the most fun bikes I have ridden in a while!

 

That said, you won't go wrong with any of those options.

The Slade is very much in stock! Don't expect the shops to know about it though as it's not a marathon bike

Must be recently in stock then - but that's great news for the OP. When I was shopping there wasn't a single on available in SA - ended up buying a 2nd hand frame.
