Every month brings something new in South Africa and April is no different.

Here’s what’s on in South Africa in the last month of Autumn – April.


Once a year, hundreds of creative individuals gather in the Tankwa Karoo to create what can be described as a temporary city of art, themed camps, burning sculptures, costumes, music and performance, that all lasts for a week – this is AfrikaBurn.

AfrikaBurn, which was started in 2007 as a not-for-profit event, is a festival that aims to be inclusive and accessible to anyone and everyone interested.
