Directions to Solitaire Lodge
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 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.
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, mountain zebra, springbok, kudu, cheetah, leopard, brown and spotted hyena, aardwolf, and much more.
Solitaire Lodge, wrapped around a courtyard pool, shaded by thatch and camel thorne trees, offers spacious en-suite rooms with air conditioning, private patios, and free wifi.
Cafe Van der Lee serves delicious lunches and fresh nightly meals to lodge guests and visitors.
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.
Special Note: The distance from Solitaire to Sesriem is approximately 83km or 1 ½ hours’ drive.
