Hello

Kan iemand asb. vir my se wat die situasie is met die strand ry in Sodwana? :beg:
Wat ek gehoor het is as volg:
1. Moet nou ʼn permit hê
2. Net 100 sal per dag uit geruik word
3. Mense wag van 4 am om een te kry
Is die 100 vir kampeerders of is daar nog vir mense wat van buite die kamp plek kom

Good questions. Consider phoning the Natal Parks board they'll give you all the latest details

Regrettably what you've heard is true.

I was there last year in December and it was absolute chaos.

Most people that want beach permits camp the entire night outside the parks board offices, so 4am is way too late.

I rocked up at 4am and thought I was first in the queue, after hanging around for a while I realised I was too late.

They also didn't allow other 4x4's onto the beach when the people who got permits in the morning come off.

There is 100 permits for inside the camp and 100 permits for outside, not too sure how the outside permits are issued.

New Years day is a no no, everyone who lives around Sodwana is on the beach.

Most people packed up and went home.

You should rather try Bhanga Nek / Kosi Bay / Black Rock

Wat ek gehoor het is as volg:
1. Moet nou ʼn permit hê Ja, net 200 per dag word uitgereik - 100 vir kampeerders en 100 vir dag besoeker
2. Net 100 sal per dag uit geruik word Soos bo
3. Mense wag van 4 am om een te kry Nee, 4 am is jy jarre te laat - mense het al van 20:00 begin tou staan om 06:00 die volgende oggend 'n permit te kry. NIE my idee van 'n vakansie NIE!!!
Is die 100 vir kampeerders of is daar nog vir mense wat van buite die kamp plek kom

Dit was verseker my laaste vakansie op Soddies. Die plaaslike inwoners stap net deur die hekke en ons pigment gestremdes moet toegang betaal - selfs "plaaslike inwoners" met GP plate betaal nie!

Ek kan nogals my g@t in 'n krul trek vir sulke onregverdigheid, so vir my eie gesondheid vermy ek maar die plek!

A 4x4 is merely a machine that enables you to get stuck further away from civilization.

Dit was 'n stil naweek daar, so geen rye nie, GEEN drank word toegelaat nie. Jy kan net op naweke en publieke vakansiedae op die strand ry.
Ek dink my dae daar is nou ook getel :thumbdown:
Ja pie plaaslikes stroom gratis in :shock:

Ek was Oktober daar en het elke dag n "beach" permit gekry.
Drank word nie meer toegelaat op die strand nie.
Kon ingaan van 06h00 tot 18h00.

Dit is meer soos dit was nie en ek het ook besluit dit was my laaste keer daar.
Daar is ander plekke waar n mens net so kan geniet.
Ongelukkig het die oproeriges veroorsaak dat al die reels nou dit onsmaaklik maak vir ander.
Kosi baai is ook lekker maar meer en meer mense oorweeg Mosambiek as n opsie.
Go, just go.... Somewhere.... Out There...
