Transfer johannesberg to Central Drakensburg

We are arriving in Jo'berg in July 2008 to commence our 80 day trans-southern Africa adventure. We want to spend 4 days in the Drakensberg after arrival in Jo'berg to rest and recuperate from the 18 hour flight! So happy to just sit and soak up a great view with maybe one or two activities - horse riding, short walks (nothing arduous) cultural etc. We have a good budget.

Our questions

1. what is the best form of transport to the Drakensberg?

2. Any reccomendations for accomodation?

Id say your best form of transport would be a car. You can really fly as there are no major airports in/near the drakensberg. Train and busses are not really an option either. Hire a car at the airport and drive - it will take about 3-4 hours. Thats not very relaxing straight from the airport however, so maybe consider a night in Joburg first?

The only transport to the Drakensberg is by car. You could spend the first night in Jo'burg. I'd recommend the Road Lodge group of hotels (www.citylodge.co.za)

I drove from Joburg to Drakensburg a few months ago and i loved it! I went through the Golden Gate, stopped off at Clarens first, then it was only an hour or so drive to Little Switzerland Hotel which was my first stop. Next day i drove to Catherdral Peak, then on to the Midlands Meander. Hope this helps
