Last year’s Afrika Burn was my first. A second Burn this year leaves me something of a vet(eran) and able to skip the intro, which I’m sure you read avidly this time last year.
Once again, I managed the rock strewn road up from Ceres and back without a tyre blow-out, a well established issue for drivers to the Tankwa region, where the Burn is held. The Tankwa is also a National Park and a favourite for weekends away from the nearby Cape. Travel without decent tyres, a spare and tools at your peril.
The only difference was my son, co-driver and Burn virgin beside me in the car. I’m pleased to report that we both had a great time.
Enough words. Here’s a peek at Afrika Burn 2019.
