Solitaire is a place you seldom hear about. Few people talk about Solitaire if they did not find out that they will have to pass Solitaire on their way to another destination. Or if they haven't been there already.

The name Solitaire reminds one of loneliness, isolation and seclusion, but it is nothing of that sort. At least not during tourist season.

Sesriem to Solitaire

As indicated by the name Solitaire, this townlet is a solitary place in the middle of nowhere. Its reason for existence is the fact that it lies on a rather busy crossroads.

It grew from a place with a solitary tree, one solitary petrol pump and a solitary take away kiosk to what it is today.

It has a fuel garage, a country lodge, a camping site, a restaurant/apple tart eating place and a neighbouring tourism business.

Accommodation:

Solitaire Country Lodge
Ensuite rooms, aircon; pool; restaurant; camping. 83 km from Sesriem in Solitaire. Tel +264-(0)61 240375
