Return to the Source

… is a boutique music & arts festival, inspired in 2020 as a rebellion reaction against the loss of human rights suffered when the Covid-19 pandemic appeared.

Our first edition in October 2020 was intended for a very small group of guests and grew into something quite extraordinary. With two festivals per annum (Spring & Autumn editions) we intend to preserve the safe & intimate environment created thus far.

At the core of this experience is The Spirit Train (affectionately known as LOBO) – a passion project that was born on the desert playa of Afrikaburn during 2014, and came to life in 2015. After quite some hibernation LOBO has found his new home within the characteristic Tankwa Tented Camp.

A new journey has begun… a conscious community gathering around music, art, light, love and information. Freedom is our birth-right and your senses are our playground.


Tanqua Kuru Bicycle Race

The Tanqua Kuru Bicycle Race is a two-day gravel race deep in the Tankwa Karoo.

The second edition of this race will take place on the weekend of 27 to 29 May 2022.

The race has been specifically designed to test a modern gravel bicycle, however, our aim is to bring people who love bicycles together. We want to be as inclusionary as possible, so we welcome any type of bicycle to take part. Trophies will however be reserved for drop-bar gravel bicycles.


Tankwa Trail Run

The Tankwa Trail Run experience is the equilibrium of all ecstatic emotions, wrapped up in one weekend of fun.

Runners taking part can align themselves with trails, through rocky outcrops, fresh fruit plantations and the serenity of the Koue-Bokkeveld as a backdrop.

Make yourself at home under the southern cross as you relax and ready yourself for a one-of-a-kind weekend, where it’s more about the journey than the destination.

Tankwa Artscape

Residency at Stonehenge Private Reserve.

Imagine a desert floor, undisturbed by human traffic. It’s not the absence of life that is so dramatically visual. It is a few million years old retrospective of ancient seabed and cataclysmic geological events in Earth’s history, and the footprint of storms and water flow in the riverbeds.

Vast pans nudge aside scrub and vlei and gentle hills and land, which drop outside of the quick glance, towards a perimeter of deep-set mountain horizon.
