Hi guys,

I already posted it in Eastern Cape forum, just thought I would post it here as well.

We are planning for a day visit to Baviaanskloof. Traveling from JHB, I believe we would enter from Patensie side, driving all the way through to Willowmore. Please correct me if I am wrong. This is our first trip to EC and we are really looking forward to it.

Few questions if someone has recently been there-

- How are the road conditions now? We'll be driving Terios 4wd. Any concern? Advice?

- We have a small dog, we would like to take her with us. She has done long trips before. But do they allow small dogs to enter? We'll not be camping or anything, it's just a day visit, driving from one point to another. Please advise.

- Do we need to book for a permit beforehand or we get it on the spot?
