EcoTrip #2


NB: Meal ticket sales have now closed.


Following the success of our first EcoTrip in April, we are excited to announce that the second EcoTrip event will be taking place at Quaggafontein from 30 September to 4 October.


AfrikaBurn invites you to come and discover Quaggafontein and lay the foundations for our holistic land stewardship project into the future. Get involved in five fun-filled days of ecosystem restoration, have a jol, and be part of something on Quaggafontein that will make a positive long term difference.


On this ‘Trip we will go beyond the homestead area into the surrounding veld and implement various rehabilitation techniques with the soil and vegetation, while also continuing to work on our food garden and permaculture initiatives.


The daytime programme will also include immersive nature experiences, skill-sharing workshops and talks on relevant topics e.g. heritage, ecology and regenerative living. Evening festivities will be facilitated by a soundsystem and DJ setup that we invite you to plug into. Not forgetting our roots, we’re planning a small burn on the Saturday night, built as a group by all who are keen, and plenty of opportunity for radical self-expression.


On the art front, we have Nathan Honey, core creative lead on Subterrafuge – one of our community’s most beloved artworks – coming to run an art workshop. He is inviting you to help him build an artwork called 66/66 1000, an exploration of shelters and structures inspired by traditional building in the Karoo, as well as the learnings and observations from the recent SKOP (Sutherland Kuns en Ontwikkelings Projek) initiative.


Do you have knowledge or skills you can share? Are you keen to facilitate an activity? Music? Performance? Art? Let us know how you want to be involved, and contact us via [email protected]


Sign up now, get involved, gift, participate and co-create your experience at Quaggafontein. 


To maintain the intimate atmosphere we all enjoyed so much at the last EcoTrip, we will only be releasing 100 tickets, so make sure to get yours before they sell out!


Please note that we are offering donation-enriched tickets for this event, designed to allow participants to donate a little extra. By purchasing either of the higher priced tickets, you're directly funding the ongoing movement that is AfrikaBurn, and enabling further projects and experiments, just like EcoTrip. Don't feel obliged, but please do consider it if you are able to afford it.
