An adventure so surreal, so sublime that words fail to portray the wonders of Afrika Burn. Here is some of the magic I enjoyed.
First time burners – burn virgins – ring this gong upon arriving.
Beautiful Tankwa Karoo. Afrika Burn is a leave no trace event – truly the epitome of the adage “take only memories, leave only footprints”.
People imagine and make real the most incredible sculptures and artworks. And then they bring them to the desert as gifts for us all. Joy!
Get around in a mutant vehicle.
Wowza, burners are incredible!
The San Clan is the symbol of the burn, and is set on fire in front of a captivated audience of thousands – some of them naked and enthralled in front of the flames.
The best part of the burn are the people you share the experience with. And the dressing up of course!
Loos with the best views!
Until next time…
