Afrikaburn 2013 Lets go together!
Posted October 16th, 2012 - 8:01 pm by from Chibuto, Mozambique (Permalink)
Greetings,

I am looking at this very early but I just arrived to Africa a few months ago and i am already very excited to go to Afrikaburn to experience my first burn. I live in Mozambique right now and would like to know if anyone would like to go with me to Afrikaburn or if I could possibly join a group that will go there. I dont know how to prepare for this or to get there.I would need some advices and guidance.

Let me know if anyone is interested! :)

Obrigada!

Howzit dudes,

I will definitely be at Afrikaburn next year. It will be my first time but I will be going with a friend who's been 2x before. Don't underestimate the preparation for this, it's out in the desert! You need to bring everything, including water.

Some things which I hear are helpful include wellingtons and a bike to get around. I highly recommend you have your own transport or share/hire transport with other people.

There is an upcoming fundraising event (http://www.facebook.com/events/448868865152623/) which I'll be at as well.

Keep your eye on the site ( http://www.afrikaburn.com/) and get your tickets early because only a small increase in attendence is allowed every year to keep the Afrika Burn spirit alive.

If there is enough interest I will create a couchsurfing event closer to the time next year and drag my friend along to help people prepare properly for this.

In search of the creative self!! Peace..

Thats great!! I would love to tag along if i could. I do have a bike to take it from Mozambique to South Africa might be a hassle so i prefer to share the transportation with other people.
Do you know how much the tickets were last year?

Thanks for the price info Philip!
Rheline I am definitely down!!! I know it is so early but I am so excited about it that I want to know who is interested already and just keep in touch for when the time comes to meet and hang out. :)))

I'm definitely keen too. Mates and I have been planning to go in any case. We will probably have room to take a CS with us too.

Tier 1 and 2 tickets sold out in 45mins apparently last year. Tier 3 and 4 tickets will be on sale next week with lower tiers coming out a couple of weeks later if I recall.

Hello folks!
I'm moving to Cape Town and I already have been to BM in Nevada (and of course I loved it :)

So, I'm still not 100% sure but I really want to go!
Keep in touch and let's burn

Hi Olivia!

I'm also going and would love to go down with you. With everyone! I was really super lucky and managed to get my ticket before the maaaad rush!

Let's all keep in touch I reckon and we can go down together?

Hello burners!

There is a facebook page for those wanting to collaborate on lifts here: http://www.facebook.com/events/126960287481769/.

I personally think that meet is a little late and we could possibly have our own meet beforehand to work out specifics.

I have my own wheels and will most likely have space for 1 or 2. This will be my first burn so I want to be as prepared as possible.

I will be taking some time off from work and most likely leaving on Sunday 28th or Monday 29th of April taking 2 days to get down and then 2 days to get back up to Jozi afterwards.

San clan burns in 65 days!

Hello Burners!
I am trying to plan something with some people to head from Johannesburg to AfrikaBurn. Parad0x I would love to join you if its not too late. I am a first timer and I totally agree with being super prepared. I will be flying in to Johannesburg from New York on the 25th. Please let me know if you would like to go together. If not then maybe we could still meet up anyways.

Posted February 28th, 2013 - 9:02 am by from London, England (Permalink)
I'd also love to join you guys? My first time too. Though I do know people who have been and can find out what we need to survive. Lots of water! xx

I'm in! I've got a 4x4 and I'll get a trailer so we'll have space for bicycles, tents and stuff. Can we do a meetup before the event in some central interesting place? By central I mean somewhere like Drakensberg (Underberg, Sani Pass area) where we could camp out for the weekend and plan our plots to rock AfriKaBurn!

hey ho!
I've got a ticket, too and I somehow have to get there from durban. I'm an exchange student and only in the country for 6 months so I don't have my own car or something. if someone is going from KZN to the burn and theres still a seat available: I'm happy to occupy it ;-)
beside that a pre-meeting in the drakensberg would be an awesome idea as well, i'd be in! but it should be sometime soon, i guess!?!

see you in the desert!

Hey people!
what do you think of creating an official CS AfrikaBurn-Event and sat up a little camp together? I think there will be quite a few people who are currently travelling or people who only got one or two tickets for their group and who don't come with a bunch of friends... would be nicer to camp in a bigger group i guess!
irie,
daniel

Posted April 13th, 2013 - 7:59 pm by from Johannesburg, South Africa (Permalink)
Good Idea Daniel(maybe you should go ahead and start it..;))

Guys im sooo in.. and will most likely be alone.. so camping all together is a great idea..:DD
