Idealizing the burning man that was held 15 years ago, the Afrikaburn is an event filled with spiritual and artistic creations. The Stonehenge group that initially organized Afrikaburn focuses on ten general principals. These include philosophical, self-reliance, communal effort and self-expression that is so inspiring to the participants of the event. A larger percentage of the population is partying and dancing and fewer are hanging out in healing camps or attending workshops as they do at Burning Man. AfrikaBurn is not just one big party, the younger average age does create a more active party environment and, even more hot bodies both male participants and female participants to appreciate in the desert. In fact, maybe it’s because this is Africa, but the costumes seem more colorfully indigenous at AfrikaBurn showing that everyone enjoys well.

The company was registered on 24th July 2007 in South Africa and they have being organizing this event in a grand manner for the past decade as an annual event. The crowds that draw into this event are quite satisfied with the public services, security and protection provided during these events.
