    Default Atlantis dunes

    Hi
    A few work colleagues and I want to go play at Atlantis dunes on 5 October. 2019.
    We have not been there before, so I have some questions re the permits.
    PS.. some of the guys had never 4x4'd before.
    How do I go about getting a permit for driving at Atlantis.
    Can it be purchased at the gate or do I have to go somewhere else.
    What is the price?
    Thanks you in advance.

    I would suggest that you have a briefing session with all the drivers of the vehicles and explain critical sand driving techniques such as:


    • lower tyre pressures to greatly improve traction and reduce track erosion
    • drive smoothly with gear changes at high revs
    • ensure wheels are pointing straight ahead when taking off
    • avoid the soft sand at the base of dunes and gullies
    • make turns as wide as possible
    • ONLY travel straight up or down dunes
    • follow in others tire tracks to drive on compressed ground
    • avoid braking by coasting to a stop
    • do not floor the accelerator if you are bogging down
    • when bogged, try to reverse on your own tracks To name but a few

    So I am down in CT for a month or two on a work assignment and have planned a trip to the dunes for tomorrow morning. I will have a friend coming with so it will be the Hilux and an Amarok

    Anyone else going tomorrow? I am a Atlantis Virgin...
