Days 1 - 3
The desert town of Solitaire, in the south-western Khomas Region of central Namibia, is like a small oasis. There is not much to do or see in this tiny village, other than stop for refreshments and filling up with petrol. Solitaire boasts the only petrol station, general store and post office between Sossusvlei and Walvis Bay. There is also a small bar and a bakery famous for its apple pie – said to be the best in the country – as well as a luxury lodge, a motel and a campsite.
Activities: Enjoy a scenic sundowner with spectacular views of the Namib Desert; take time for a hike; go biking through unspoilt natural scenery; visit the local cheetah sanctuary.
