    Many Thanks for the Info DH!

    another plea to the guys - lets not go in without a permit - I know it's not always easy getting one... but just get one.

    Still bargain compared to the privilege of being allowed in there

    How often do you go to the dunes?

    If you go once a month with an annual permit, you score.

    Are they not being a bit too aggressive on the pricing and thus forcing people away? Not here to start fires, honest questions.

    24% is excessive. The sandboarders were only subjected to 10%.

    The R35 increase on a day permit is barely 3 litres of fuel, which the V8 & I6 guys won't flinch at because it's less than 4kms worth of driving. The annual permit is still a bargain.

    Adore are currently debating the matter including looking at the increases in other Nature Reserves, for their various users groups. Naturally it wouldn't like too see any pattern of discriminatory practices towards ORVs, especially since it would appear that the Sand Boarders weren't subjected to the same % increase.

    Maybe The City see 4x4 owners as 'rich' people. It is not as if the dunes needs maintenance, the vegetation on the outside of the dunes needs to be maintained and managed. But I am not sure about the pricing. I understand that Vleesbaai is about R450.00 entrance fee. I think The City is milking the cow.

    Just a quick question. Are the dunes run by Cape Nature and is this a nature reserve, If it is so then you could surely use the WILD CARD issued by National parks as that covers all reserves including cape nature

    Fun fact: None of the income stream from permit revenue goes towards the direct budget of dune managements P&L.

    Klaus no it's not run by CN. It's currently managed by the City's Bulk Water dept in partnership with the Environmental Recourses dept. It hasn't been proclaimed a reserve yet but the promulgation is happening soon.

    The rest of your question regarding the Wild Card is an interesting one & a very good question. I don't have an answer but will find out.

    In fact, it's a really, really, really good question :-)

    Another reason that we shouldn't be charged the high prices.

    I commend ADORE and hope they are able to control the situation better, and make it fair for all.

    Just for clarity, Adore doesn't control anything. It's only a member of the PAAC in an advisory role. Decisions are made by the Management Authority.

    .......but let's just say that having faith won't be misplaced :-)

    I presume the fee is per vehicle - Cape Point is R125 per adult and R65 per child. I think the fee is perfectly reasonable, if there are two of you in the vehicle, it's cheaper than going to see a movie, and a helluva lot more fun in most instances.

    Yes it's per vehicle Tony. The rate per passenger, if applicable, is cloudy.

    It isn't a great amount of money & a typical trail costs more. However, the visitation of your typical dune regular I suspect to be more frequent. An annual permit isn't always 100% feasible for each user.

    I'd look forward to them presenting such an argument & would gladly engage them in such a debate should they be brave enough to afford us that opportunity.

    But a fellow Adore member said this (not my words) & I hope he doesn't mind me quoting him too much.

    "We represent the common man driving a common 4x4"

    That's it really.

    Typical trail is about R150, cheaper than the dunes. Here they maintain the trails, build new trails etc.

    I'm not saying we should all be entitled to free entry, but fair entry. And if the money was being pumped back into the said area, then it's even more worthwhile.

    And here I thought the city works for us
