I'm not sure about who gives better rates, but there is a Rennies Travel/Thomas Cook outlet on the lower level at OR Tambo (Jhb Airport).

There are 2 Forex counters in the International Terminal with rates that are essentially the same. If you are exchanging traveler's checks, you might find that they won't charge the commission. I say 'might' because I think it will depend on which company issued your checks.
