While leisure travel into and out of Gauteng is prohibited, you're allowed to cross the border if you want to go hunting.
Following amendments to the lockdown levels by the Department of Co-Operative Governance and Traditional Affairs, other departments and their ministers are allowed to amend rules and directives relating to the above-mentioned changes.
On Monday, the Department of Environmental Affairs Gazetted rules and directives relating to the biodiversity sector. Under Minister Barbara Creecy's rules, game parks, botanical gardens, zoos and aquariums are allowed to remain open.
The rules also give hunters the chance to cross Gauteng's borders, as long as it's for the purpose of hunting for meat. The Notice in the Gazette states that inter-provincial travel to or from Gauteng is permitted for hunting, with the primary purpose of obtaining meat for consumption, and culling.
Many might see this as an opportunity to get out of Gauteng during the school holidays, but roadblocks set up across the province and its borders might stop you in your tracks. With families travelling together, it might not get you across the border, and transporting alcohol is still also prohibited.
