Sign indicating travel restrictions for Skeleton Coast National Park

And then a riddle at the crossing of C39 and C43:

"SKELETON COAST PARK NOVISITORS TO TORRABAY-TERRACEBAY
WITHOUT A BOOKING - TRANSIT PERMITS TO UGABWUND ONLY
AVAILABLE AT SPRINGBOKWASSERGATE - TRANSIT PERMIT
FEES PER PERSON - NAMIBIAN ADULTS - N$30-00 SADC
REGIONS - N$60-00 FOREIGNERS - N$80-00

GATE CLOSE AT 15H00 NILE 108 231 KM FUELAVAILABLE
NO QUARTER BIKES OR BIKES ALLOWED THREW THE PARK"

Honestly, we stood there for like five minutes discussing whether it makes sense to drive this way or not. The sign was no big help for us. Yes, we needed a permit. Yes, the gates will not be open all day long. But why wouldn't we allowed to Torra Bay? We had planned to take up some fuel there. But where the heck is Springbokwasser? And Ugabwund? Questions, questions...!
