AfrikaBurn 2016

As with each year since it started in 2007, AfrikaBurn takes place on Stonehenge Farm in the Tankwa Karoo in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa. A year’s worth of anticipation, dreaming, planning, building and creating comes together to create Tankwa Town, a temporary city formed from the imaginations of its participants (that’s you).
