Route 62 is South Africa’s answer to Australia’s Outback, to America’s Arizona Desert. Set back from the renowned Garden Route, few visitors have heard of it, let alone driven it – making it one of the least travelled highways in the country. It is dotted with padstalle serving home-bakes like koeksusters (small plaited pastries, deep fried then marinated in syrup), buttermilk rusks and farm produce, whilst others host frontier bars serving moonshine, biltong, dröewors and Nik-Naks corn bites. It’s a journey undertaken by the most adventurous of long-distance road-trippers… and one that gives a glimpse of life in the Karoo
