Former captain Faf du Plessis and fast bowler Kagiso Rabada returned for the home team after being rested during one-day and T20 series against England.
The game is the first in South Africa for Steve Smith and David Warner since March 2018 when they were banned for ball-tampering in the third Test in Cape Town.
"It's a bit tacky on top so there might be a bit there early," he said of the pitch. "But (batting or bowling) doesn't make much difference."
