Commonly Asked Questions and Answers

1. Space Allowance:
  • What you can fit in a taxi on the way to the BUS, you can fit in the BUS. The BUS does have an undercarriage. But everyone must work TOGETHER to help fit everything. i.e once the under carriage is full, use the space under your seat or keep your bag on your lap. This means that unfortunately you cannot bring your bicycle on the BUS.
2. Must I bring water and food and stuff?
  • Yes, you’re going into the desert, there is nothing there. You need to bring everything with you! If you need to bring up bigger things reach out to the community, and request some help!
3. I've got a flight back to ______ from Cape Town on the 29th in the evening. how likely is it to reach the airport in time?
  • We advise that you to stay the night (just to be safe). In the past we have had no issues (arrive at 8pm), however, the road has been known for taking tyres. In addition, you can always hitch hike back from the burn surprisingly easily if the BUS is delayed and your intentions are right. But preferably book your flight for the NEXT day.
4. I am looking to buy a one-way ticket to AfrikaBurn?
  • There are unfortunately no one way tickets for logistical reasons. Please feel free to gift your return ticket to someone in need or find someone in the various AfrikaBurn groups or communities (such as our Facebook page where we make posts for one way tickets) to share a ticket. Just make sure the new BUS passenger has a copy of both your ticket and ID and you’ve messaged or e-mailed us the details of all passengers. 
5. Where are the collection points and how does the system work?
  • THERE = Greenpoint Stadium at the McDonalds: Fritz Sonnenberg Road, Greenpoint, Cape Town, South Africa, 8051 
  • BACK   =Tankwa Town BUS STOP (see Map) 
  • Once at the collection point, find a spot to wait with your luggage until the BUS COMMANDER gives you further instructions. YOUR BELONGINGS SHOULD NOT BE LEFT UNNATENDED and you are encouraged to help pack your belongings to ensure that your fragile and valuable possessions are stored correctly.
