While just a fraction of the size of its mother event Burning Man, AfrikaBurn is a festival on the rise that attracts more and more visitors from more than 50 countries around the world.

Prepare for big shifts in weather
The weather can dive at night time after strong sun during the day. It could rain. It will be windy. Bring lots of layers of clothes to handle the diverse conditions.
Camping gear is expensive in South Africa
So, you may want to bring your tent and gear along with you since it would be a shame to spend all that money on gear you may leave behind, although the gift economy may entice you to find a new friend who’ll appreciate your camping accouterments.
Spend some time in Cape Town before or after the Burn
With Table Mountain, Lion’s Head, glorious beaches, and safari and game reserves not far away, there’s much to explore here.
AfrikaBurn takes place in the Tankwa Karoo, an arid semi-desert area located in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa. The site of the event is alongside the Tankwa Karoo National Park, is approximately 300 kilometers north of Cape Town and is located on the longest stretch of road in South Africa without petrol stations or nearby assistance. This road is the R355, which connects the towns Ceres in the south and Calvinia in the north. Fly into Cape Town International Airport (CPT)
