When you first arrive you will need a permit for those first days which you will get at the office showing your reservation and wildcard.
Then after you have left the park and stayed outside at Hazyview for a night you will need to get another permit for that last night/day in the park.
At least that is how it has always worked for us if I understand your question correctly.

This might seem like a stupid question but what does one need to bring to get into the gates?
A printout of the reservation receipt which has the accommodation listed on it?
Do the guards have a list of all the people booked in for the night which they then check against ID like a passport?

Obviously I will bring my SA passport and my wife her British one to pay conservation fees (only staying 4 nights so no wild card)... Hope I haven't missed anything?!

After you have showed the above (and paid) they will give you an entry permit with date/s paid receipt and number of people entering (may have some other stuff on too - can't remember) to show to the security guys at the gate as you actually drive into the park proper.

I brought along reservation and wild card printouts and the was enough. However, what I needed to re enter the three gates I exited for out of park runs varied. Keep your documentation handy and, in one instance, I showed my key. :)

And when you are staying overnight you actually pay the conservation fee at the camp when you check in, and not at the gate as you enter. But you still need to get your entry permit from the gate - and then remember to read it!
