Just a very small but very nice desert town

Many tourists use Solitaire as a stopover en route to or from Sesriem and the Sossusvlei. It is situated in a very sparsely populated area close to the Namib Naukluft Park at the crossing of two important roads: the C14 from Walvis Bay to Bethanien and the C24 from Rehoboth to Sossusvlei.

Point of interest
North of Sossusvlei
Restaurant & Bakery

Soltaire merely consists of a filling station, a shop, a chapel and a bakery with a café. The café is well known for its apple cake, arguably “the best in the whole of Namibia”. A lodge and a campsite complete Solitaire.

Opinions differ when it comes to the origin of the name „Solitaire“. Some say that when the place was founded in 1884 only a single house existed. This is apparently not correct as there have always been several buildings. The name is probably derived from the word solitude.

First thing to catch the visitor’s attention when arriving at Solitaire is the abundance of car wrecks which have been picturesquely draped along the road. Solitaire is about 83 km away from Sesriem.
