The best Roadside shop in the Tankwa Karoo - Tankwa Padstal on Route 355 in South Africa

Stop at the best Roadside Shop in the Tankwa Karoo

Visiting Tankwa Padstal is a unique experience. From a distance you notice a flying saucer halfway buried in the Karoo soil and on closer inspection, more gems come into view - the mannequin crafted out of blue mosaic greeting you from a gate pole, the hippy Beetle trying to climb up a windmill..

As you enter the Padstal, owners Hein and Susan Lange are there to greet the weary traveller and make you feel right at home.

Our visitors are delighted with great food and a shop that overflows with unique trinkets and memorabilia from yesteryear.

On your next journey on the longest dirt road in South Africa, stop at Tankwa Padstal and feed your soul.
