Natal Drakensberg end of April

We will be visiting South Africa in April. Over the Easter weekend we will be in the Durban area and we are thinking of combining this with a two - three day trip to and into the (Southern and Central) Drakensberg area (Lesotho). All of this weather permitting of course although we understand that by April the summer rains will probably have subsided and we can expect clear days and cold nights.

Any advice is most welcome, particularly on e.g. weather related clothing, transportation (do we really need a 4X4 or not, suggestions for chauffeur driven guided tours); places to stay overnight, places to eat etc. etc..
We did not realize that the month of April is a holiday month in South Africa; we encountered problems in trying to find accommodation in the Western Cape area and expect the same will be true for the Drakensberg. Therefore again: any advice will be most appreciated. Thanks a lot, Fodorites!
