    Default Diamond area permits

    Hi All,

    If we have our travel freedoms back in August then the missus and I would like to do the West Coast (again). And of cource, it should be flower time as well.
    We want to travel as close to the sea as possible from port Noloth right down to Koingnass:
    Are permits available for this,
    Can one bush camp in these areas ( assuming a permit)
    Where can one get a permit before hand.

    Regards
    G

    No permits were necessary when we travelled it late last year. If you camp wild, it will have to be south of the Groenrivier’s lighthouse as the section from their north to close to Hondeklipbaai is now SANP.

    Is it possible to access the coast between Kleinsee and Koingnaas? When it still belonged to De Beers Consolidated Mines, that was their active mining area and access was highly controlled. One was not even allowed to stop along the tarred road between said villages! Same for the area between Koingnaas and Hondeklip Bay, including the mines of Trans-Hex.

    The area between Spoeg River mouth and Gert du Toit se Baai was originally a free for all camping area. The northern part of this is now included in the Namaqua National Park. Is it still possible to go camping for free from say, Bitter River mouth down to Gert du Toit se Baai?

    Some recent local knowledge required here, please?
