In this article, we’ll show you how to create an unforgettable look for AfrikaBurn. AfrikaBurn is a five day event so it’s important to pack your bag according to the weather forecast. It can get very cold at night, so make sure to bring warm clothes, a sleeping bag and/or blanket, and any other personal items you might need for the night.

What is AfrikaBurn?

AfrikaBurn is an annual event held in the Tankwa Karoo region of the Western Cape, South Africa. The event is described as “a five-day, experimental arts and culture festival that takes place in one of the most remote and beautiful areas of the country.” 

AfrikaBurn is not your average music festival – it’s a completely unique experience that combines art, music, and creativity in a way that can’t be found anywhere else. The event is self-funded and run by a volunteer team of around 100 people. Everyone participates in the organisation of the event and takes on various roles during the event itself to ensure that it runs smoothly. AfrikaBurn is famous for its dedication to leaving no trace on the land. All structures are made from recycled and repurposed materials, and all organic waste is either buried or removed by participants at the end of the event. The event is held at the Tankwa Karoo National Park in the Tankwa Karoo Biosphere Reserve, a proclaimed World Heritage Site. The park covers an area of around 100km2 and is a unique and fragile ecosystem.
