AfrikaBurn has a lot in common with its American predecessor, Burning Man. A temporary city springs up in the middle of a desert, fills with wildly imaginative structures and creatively (un)dressed people, and, a week later, disappears. The biggest difference: This sandy patch is a national park, the Tankwa Karoo, home to a rainbow of vegetation and birds as diverse as the festivalgoers. Plus, at about $80, tickets are a fraction of Burning Man’s hefty price tag.

The next AfrikaBurn will happen April 25-May 1, 2016. For more information, visit Afrikaburn.com.
