          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.
