When downloading DXF documents, it is important to specify the projection (the transformation of the coordinates of each node to represent an object from the surface of the spherical earth, to a flat map). The projection that you would use is the relevant Hartebeesthoek94 / Lo projection. To find out which Lo projection you should use, swith on the map gridlines, and check which Lo is closest to your export area's longitude. E.g. if the area you are exporting is at lat,long: -33.7167009173558,18.982486724853516, you would use the EPSG:40019 - Hartebeesthoek94 / Lo19 projection.
