Solitaire, a historic settlement at the edge of the Namib-Naukluft National Park, has been a welcome stop for travelers for over 60 years.

Solitaire Roadhouse, wrapped around a courtyard pool, shaded by thatch and Camelthorn trees, offers 25 spacious rooms wrapped around a lush desert garden. All rooms are fully air-conditioned and feature two double beds, wheelchair accessible en-suite bathroom with shower + outdoor seating area. Two family rooms include 2 x additional twin beds, sleeping up to 6 persons.

Shop in the nostalgic General Dealer and Curio, and don’t miss McGregor’s Bakery for the world-famous apple pie, home baked bread, pastries, gelato and espresso.

Activities include hiking, biking, plus scenic drives and sundowners. Visits to the cheetah sanctuary are reservation-only.

Solitaire is the perfect base for day trips to explore Namibia’s Sossusvlei dunes, Namib-Naukluft Park or Kuiseb Canyon, and a unique stay-over between Sessriem and Swakopmund. The Solitaire grasslands are rich in free-roaming wildlife including oryx, giraffe, mountain zebra, springbok, kudu, cheetah, leopard, brown and spotted hyena, aardwolf, bat-eared fox and much more.

Solitaire sits at the centre of the 70,000 acre Solitaire Land Trust, dedicated to preserving Namib grassland 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.
