A Fundraiser party for The Noble Savages Cowboys and Indians theme camp!

Howdy doo and a cackle hootie hoo, arch those bows and spread them wings, its time to take off with the American eagles: watch them cowboys ride, and Indians hide (or just fall off their bikes)…soar through the dreams of the original reds, and gallop through the desert with the kings in chaps and hats. Join us as the mightiest of vendettas: cowboys VS Indians come together under Tipi’s and Dreamcatchers to hunt (each other. or you. or themselves, depending on the time of night) and laugh and drink, and burn a totem pole in a salutation to the burning Karoo days and twinkling nights. Adios Amigos. Muskets at dawn. One awesome line-up! This is the last day that every bar/club can open till 4am as the city of CT is bringing it down to 2am, So come jam till 4am for one last time with us.
If you going to AB, pop in and say Howdy or Ola…

AfrikaBurn Zebra Migration: join the herd (and be seen)!

Join the Tankwa Town migration and decorate your bicycle with a Zebrahead and join a mass stampede ride around the Binnekring.
The cost will be R110 each to cover materials.
What you get is a painted cardboard, that when folded becomes the Zebrahead and an attachment to your bicycle. We’ll help you fold the cardboard turn into a Zebrahead and attach it to your bike. At Tankwa Town, come and join a folding party to fold the cardboard into heads. Pimp up your own outfit to add to the spectacle. (EG: wear a hat, stripy socks, a wig….it’s up to you!)
Do you want to be part of the migration? Let me know how many you want.
We will need you to deposit money into our account before we place the order on the 5th April. I’ll message you account details. For more info, check out the event page on
