Sandboarding business as usual at Atlantis sand dunes after complaints heard

Businesses around the Witsands Aquifer Nature Reserve (Atlantis sand dunes) have been complaining about the construction of a large office park which is now limiting access to the dunes that are the core of their sandboarding business.

On the 11 January, Owner of Sandboarding Cape Town, based in Atlantis, Dylan Le Roux spoke to CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies about the problem and said he had had no luck in his attempts to contact those in power.

Kieno Kammies responded with a promise to contact the necessary parties involved and get answers and a solution.

Head of Nature Conservation-North, Bongani Mnisi says the concerns of these business owners were taken into account and new arrangements were made to afford visitors access to the dunes.
