Solitaire, a historic settlement at the edge of the Namib-Naukluft National Park, has been a welcome stop for travellers for over 60 years.
It’s the perfect base for day trips to explore Namibia’s Sossusvlei dunes, Namib-Naukluft Park, Kuiseb Canyon, hike the Naukluft Mountains and drive Spreetshogte Pass.
Join us for a game drive in our stunning grasslands, rich in free-roaming wildlife including oryx, mountain zebra, springbok, kudu, cheetah, leopard, brown and spotted hyena, aardwolf, and much more.
Cafe & Bakery
Stop by McGregor’s Bakery for fresh bread and pastries, our world-famous apple pie, espresso, gelato, and take away sandwiches.
Cafe van der Lee features fresh, bistro-style lunches and delicious dinner specials every night, served with fine South African wines.
General Dealer & Curio
You’ll find groceries, picnic supplies, ice, ATM, water, sodas, cold beer, wine, personal items and more in our well-stocked store.
Be sure and visit the curio shop for carvings, raffia and jewellery from Namibia and all around Africa.
Diesel, Petrol & Tyre Repair
The Namib Desert is hard on automobiles. We sell petrol and diesel, and provide towing, tyre repair and sales, oil and miscellaneous fixes.
It’s the only petrol stop between Sossusvlei and Swakopmund!
The Lodge, Guest Farm & Campgrounds

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, widely considered the oldest desert in the world.
