South Afrifur is a furry convention which takes place in South Africa.


The first South Afrifur convention was held on July 14 (Monday)-July 17 (Friday), 2017,[1] at the Magalies Retreat in Krugersdorp, Gauteng Province, South Africa.[2]

The event saw 28 attendees,[3] Activities included a welcoming braai and speech on the first evening, a small artists alley on Saturday followed by a scavenger hunt, obstacle course and gladiator arena, a games and social evening (including cards against furmanity, Who's Hitler and a few others), followed by a movie night. On Sunday the convention had panels on furry literature and publishing (Erdwolf_TVL), Social Media and Furry.FM (Bravura from Switzerland, Ivic Wulfe and Scratch) and a panel on fursuiting (Yote Fox). There was also a fursuit photoshoot, quiz afternoon and a raffle.
