As you explore the African Burning Man Regional, your movement becomes an integral part of experiencing Afrikaburn. You are encouraged to dance in celebration or meditation at any time throughout each day & night’s performances. There aren’t set times for when these activities will be happening, so make sure that they’re accessible on your itinerary!
The nature of this regional event is to explore and immerse yourself in whatever is playful, entertaining or beautiful. It follows a strict leave-no-trace policy which means there are no trash bins for your refuse at all – even water can be hard to come by sometimes!
Make sure you have everything necessary as not only will it get hot, but every moment spent outdoors gives a solid dose of Vitamin D, so don’t forget sunscreen when heading out onto the playa on foot.

🌍 The Afrikaburn venue
The new venue is 30kms Southeast of the previous event site as the crow flies. It lies just beneath the Northern Cape border with Western Cape and can be accessed from the R355 highway.
The landscape will still offer rocky terrain below while the views of the mountains ringed by incredible sunrises & sunsets remain – you’re sure to enjoy this slight twist!
There is an extensive section on the venue, how to get there and much more in our comprehensive Afrikaburn survival guide.
