Hi All

As has been widely discussed, you are required to have a permit if you want to travel to remote fishing spots such as Boiling Pot, Nqorra River or Mlungwhane.

The permit is free and designates the area you can travel

The lady you can contact is

Anet Landman
Tel No: 043 7074055
Fax No: 0865190526
anet.landman@deaet.ecape.gov.za

Here's the application form

You apply for the permit per visit. It takes 24-48 hours for issuing but as with all government departments i would recommend applying 2 weeks in advance

From what I understand there are 2 different offices one for South and the other for North but I'm sure anet can elaborate.

Has anyone been fined although you these permits in hand. I got a permit in April which I used, but it had very strange wording on it. I requested a permit for the area between the Umtata river mouth and Mbolompo point. The wording on the permit stated that driving off the road at Umtate river mouth and at Mbolompo was allowed. All the areas inbetween seemed to be excluded.

I fail to understand why one require a permit to drive on a road, be it a gravel road, to a (remote) fishing spot in your own country??  ((wideeye))

People who live in remote living areas exit that and roam the streets of the more densely inhabited areas of the country without any permit.

:walk

Am I missing something??

Along with the permits come rules and regulations that are brought to your attention, this is a manner of making sure you know of such rules and regulations as many of the "Affluent" occasional visitors abuse these routes and tear them up with the extravagant 4 x 4's threatening to have them closed to all the visitors to these largely unspoilt areas.
