Solitaire, a historic settlement at the edge of the Namib-Naukluft National Park, has been a welcome stop for travellers for over 60 years.
Solitaire sits at the center of the 45,000 acre Solitaire Land Trust, dedicated to preserving the grassland, pre-Namib habitat and the wild animals that reside here. Land Trust holdings reach from the base of the Great African Escarpment to the Namib, the oldest desert in the world.
Solitaire has two lodges and guests can hike, bike or join us for a nature drive in our stunning grasslands, rich in free-roaming wildlife including oryx, mountain zebra, springbok, kudu, cheetah, leopard, aardwolf, and much more.
The Namib-Naukluft area includes Namibia’s Sossusvlei dunes, Kuiseb Canyon, and spectacular Spreetshogte Pass.
Explore thousands of acres of Namib desert, grasslands, and foothills on mapped hiking trails, fat tire bikes and scenic drives.
You’ll find water, sodas, beer, and a nice selection of wine from South Africa in the Tsondab General Dealer. Plus sunscreen, hats & t-shirts, an ATM and phone recharge time!
Diesel, Petrol & Tyre Repair
The Namib Desert is hard on automobiles. We sell petrol and diesel, and provide tyre repair and sales, oil and miscellaneous fixes.
It’s the only petrol stop between Sossusvlei and Swakopmund!
Lodges and Campground
Solitaire Lodge offers 25 spacious, en-suite rooms with air conditioning and wifi. Enjoy a swim in the courtyard pool, relax, wander the grounds or hike out into the desert.
Award-winning Solitaire Desert Farm, 7km from Solitaire, is an intimate Guest Farm experience with 15 air-conditioned, en-suite rooms, open thatch lapa restaurant, pool, hiking, and game drives. The campground provides shade, ablution, and braai facilities.
Take in a sundowner for the best sunset in Namibia and stay for the stars in one of the darkest night skies in the world.
We are proud to announce another Hospitality Association of Namibia GOLD Award of Excellence for 2016 for Solitaire Desert Farm. Thank you to everyone who voted for us! We are honored to be recognized once again for this prestigious award.
