          We loved the different hikes, the food, the way kids are so well catered for and the friendliness of all the staff. The pool and jungle gym areas are great and there was so much to do. We also saw some great birdlife.

          I'm a solo traveler flying in and out of the Johannesburg airport for a long weekend and I'd like to come stay at Cavern Drakensberg. What would be the easiest way for me to get from the airport to the resort on a Friday, returning back to Johannesburg on a Monday?

          I'd say you'd need to hire a car and drive. Or call the resort and ask if they can arrange a transfer for you.
