“To cross the bridge at Alexander Bay to Oranjemund you need a permit which is valid until Dec of the year. Phone the Permits office at 00264 63 236100 or email [email protected]. They then ask you for 2 copies of your id, signed indemnity form as well as R20 for the police clearance. It takes about 15 workdays for the permit. If you do not have a permit you cannot enter……” - Deon Kotze, 2010/04/14
