MTN Bushfire 2018 Camping

 

Camping at any event enhances the overall experience and Bushfire is no exception with its own campsite leading directly into the main festival site.  There are many options available to you whether you have your own equipment or not.  In 2018 the campsite will be open from Thursday 24th May at 9:00 until midnight on Saturday 26th May for those bringing their own camping equipment.

 

The campsite has great facilities, including hot showers, flushing toilets and running drinking water available all weekend.  There is a 24-hour café that sells breakfast, muffins, tea, coffee and juices throughout the weekend.  It is also a great spot for meeting new friends, and relaxing around fires.  The information center is where you can charge your mobile devices and find out more about your travel plans.  A full serviced site, the campsite has a free carpark located across the road from the camping area, a full security team, and a team of staff with wheelbarrows to assist you with taking your camping gear into the site.  What more could you want!

Those of you that have your own tents you can purchase a ticket for your tent for the weekend (even arriving a day early to set up in your preferred spot!)  If you have a family there is a special zone where only those with children under 16 can camp.  Both zones also have the option for a limited number of people to camp right next to your car, so book your ‘camp with car’ add-on early – don’t miss out!  If there are 20 or more of you in your party who wish to bring your own tents please contact tours@alloutafrica.com to make plans for your group.

If you are hoping to hire one of our ready erected tents, there are several options available to you.  Our Canvas Camp is exclusive and limited to only 32 tents.  Located close to a permanent shower block these are in a wooded area and are popular with those who want time away from the party spirit of the BYO areas.  Our Tent Village is next, which has 130 tents, a mini camp itself, again close to the permanent shower block.  Finally, there is the Forest Fire zone, where tents are set in clusters in the forest and campers have access to pit latrines (truly the outback experience!) as well as our main toilet and shower block.  All three options include a two-person tent, two mattresses and pillows with pillowcases.

Whatever the size of your group and your tent preferences you are sure to have the total MTN Bushfire experience by joining us at our campsite.   Don’t miss out, as tickets sell fast!  For Bushfire 2018 those that book in advance get a cheaper price than those that book on arrival in our BYO camping area – tickets will go up to ZAR 480 for adults and ZAR 240 for children if you purchase tickets on arrival.

The Campsite Check-In Desk will be open from 11 am on Thursday until midnight on Saturday, but please note that the cafe will open from 14:00 on Thursday and ful facilities will be available. So avoid the queues and arrive early to set up your camp and be ready for the full festival site opening on Friday.
