Imagine a group of people who come together to create art, burning structures, costumes, performance, theme camps, music, mutant vehicles, and so much more.

 

One of the  most inspiring parts about the entire festival is its amazing gift economy. Literally, NOTHING is for sale. You won’t see any vendors, advertising, or branding. It just doesn’t belong there. Instead it’s a decommodified zone with a gift economy that’s about giving without expecting anything in return.

Afrika Burn happens at the Tankwa Karoo National Park every year. Enjoy it this year with your friends! Or go solo and meet new people. It looks like it’s a pretty great place to meet new friends and have an amazing experience.

As one backpacker puts it, “I suggests you put this top on your bucket list.”
