The official MTN Bushfire Campsite is set up and managed by All Out Africa. It is conveniently located on the Amaswazi Farm at House Fire, within a walking distance to the festival arena. Open from Thursday 28 May to Monday 01 June 2020, the All Out Africa Bushfire Campsite offers the ultimate festival camping experience and direct access to the festival.
Situated on well–serviced, clean and beautiful lands with plenty of space and 24-hour security, the site has a true festival atmosphere. Festival fans come from all over the world to mingle and share in the joys of one of Africa’s finest festivals.
In 2020, the campsite will be relocating to a different position, with some exciting new additions: extra space for campers in some of the zones, a new Zen Zone and some campfire activities – watch this space for further updates!
If you wish to bring your own tents then you have two choices; camp in our large open BYO (Bring Your Own) zone or pay a little extra and set up your tent in a shaded area known as the BYO IN THE FOREST zone. Both are great for enjoying the full festival experience. All of our groups over 20 Pax are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org to make their bookings.
