Solitaire has a busy petrol station with restaurant and shop as well as a motel, Solitaire Country Lodge, which has become a good home for the tourist buses. There is a small shop and restaurant at the gas station, which has recently become a motelis. This motel was put down because of the great attraction that the place suddenly got at holidaymakers, after Solitaire was included in the Lonely Planet . Solitaire is of course a good place to stay for visits to the Naukluft or the Sossusvlei. The entrance at Sesriem is only 83 kilometers from Solitaire. The park is open from sunrise to sunset. From Sesriem to Sossusvlei Sossusvlei the distance is 65 km on an asphalt road.
I ended up in the desert village of Solitaire in Namibia
