AfrikaBurn 2018, Tankwa Karoo, South Africa

A week spent at the 2018 AfrikaBurn in the Tankwa Karoo, in the Northern Cape, South Africa. What an experience of openness, both in the environment and the people who attend.

As part of the Steampunk Saloon theme camp, there were many burlesque performances and dancers, as well as a few live music performers.

So there we leave Africa Burn for the year, looking forward and towards the next one in 2019. I would recommend everyone attends at least one Burn experience in their lifetime!
