Since it was established over six decades ago, this outlying community outside of Namib-Naukluft National Park has served as a convenient place to rest. There are refreshing beverages, ice cream, baked goods, coffee, and lunch options available for hungry travelers. During the lengthy trip from Sessriem to Swakopmund, you will have many opportunities to stop for refreshments, have your tires fixed, and stretch your legs. In addition, there are two well-known lodges for overnight visitors to choose from.
Kuiseb Canyon, the stunning Spreetshoogte Pass, and the Sossusvlei dunes may all be found within the Namib-Naukluft region of Namibia. There are marked hiking paths, fat tire bike routes, and scenic drives that allow visitors to explore the Namib desert, grasslands, and rocky slopes.
Solitaire is located just south of the Tropic of Capricorn in the middle of the 45,000-acre Solitaire Land Trust, which is committed to the preservation of the grassland environment as well as the wild species that call this area home. Holdings of the Land Trust extend all the way from the foot of the Great African Escarpment to the Namib Desert, which is the world’s oldest desert.
At McGregor’s Bakery, customers may get freshly baked products and espresso, as well as the bakery’s renowned apple pie, as well as cold beverages, and takeaway sandwiches. Cafe van der Lee, they are open every day for lunch and supper outside, and they serve burgers, salads, fresh pizza, fish and chips, as well as specials alongside ice-cold draft beer and high-quality South African wines.
At the conclusion of the day, take a ride across the countryside in a vintage Land Cruiser and enjoy a scenic sundowner. Snacks and cold drinks will be waiting for you at an overlook point in the Namib Desert that offers a breathtaking view of the setting sun. Included is the kind welcome of the Namibian people.
In the foothills, visitors of the lodge are encouraged to trek on routes that have been designated and are designed for all levels of fitness. Additionally, our farm roads are a lot of fun to stroll and mountain bike on.
Animals who are unable to be returned to the wild are given a place to live at the Cheetah Sanctuary. We are trying to find ways that will allow them to be released back into the wild. We provide a guided tour so that guests may watch these stunning animals and get further knowledge on cheetah conservation. There is a need for reservations.
Guests staying the night may get a complimentary breakfast pack to take with them on an early departure for a day excursion to Sossusvlei to see the famed dunes there. There are also wonderful day trips that can be taken in your own vehicle from Solitaire, such as the Spreetshoogte Pass and the Kuiseb Canyon.
Between the months of May and October, safari watching in Solitaire Namibia is at its peak, making this the ideal time to go there. Driving all the way to Solitaire from Windhoek is quite doable in a vehicle. The trip will take you two days to complete.
