          A fantastic resort with that "Burg" feeling and great food included. Most certainly far more than we expected so we are going to have to make it an annual visit as this is a really special place hidden away in the Drakensburg!

          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.
