After completing the tutorial there's 2 buddies you can go unlock right away, (there's actually 3 tutorial missions, you only get 1 and it's assigned by where you Escape from the city).
You'll find a buddy in the Lumber Camp, in the Slaughter House, and at the Cock-Fights. These can be unlocked at any point after the Tutorial mission.
Just go to the locations you didn't get sent to on the mission, clear it out, and look for a room with a save point and a locked door. When you enter you'll hear your new buddy asking for help. Open the door.
There's also a buddy in the North section of Leboa-Sako. North of Shwasana, at a plane wreck here:

Yes, whenever you're doing a buddy mission, or your buddy saves your, or you subvert a main mission. Make sure you save before though, since there's an achievement for saving all your buddies so you don't wanna lose one.
