19 - 21 April Central Cederberg Traverse - looking for extra people/ overlapping people

My husband and I are planning a 4 day overnight hike through the Central Cederberg starting on 19 April to 21 April. I phoned Cape Nature and was told that they are only allowing permits for groups of 3. Is anyone else planning a trip at the same time. We don’t even have to hike together, but can be in the same vicinity for safety and permit purposes.
